New Track: Of Monsters and Men ‘King and Lionheart’ (UTRB Remix)

On his remix of Of Monsters and Men‘s forthcoming single ‘King and Lionheart‘, Cardiff producer Until the Ribbon Breaks takes the track in a sparer, micro-house direction that, while sonically many miles away from its source material, still feels perfectly in keeping with its starry-eyed romance.

For every folky crescendo that kept the Of Monsters version afloat, here we instead find glitchy beats and glistening synths; for every rousing call-to-arms that punctuated the original, here we have desolate, siren calls long lost to the light. What links both takes on the track is a feeling of hope emerging out of a lengthy period of darkness.

- Alex Cull

NB: Of Monsters and Men’s new single ‘King and Lionheart‘ is released March 4 on Island. Expect an album later this year from Until the Ribbon Breaks.
