The title track from Foals’ upcoming new album, What Went Down, has been given the remix treatment from the Haxan Cloak. The producer turns what is probably the English band’s most intense song yet into something even darker, transforming all of Yannis Philippakis’ yelling into a digital dirge. It’s a sharp, imposing thing, and I think it may capture the anxieties of the lyrics better than the original. Listen and compare below.
What Went Down is out 8/28 via Warner Music.
