The Knocks remix Tegan and Sara’s ‘Closer’

Tegan and Sara‘s latest album Heartthrob is out today here in the U.S. This one may just be our favorite release from the Canadian duo yet! Crafty hooks, slick synth laden production – what more could we ask for?

The girls have slowly been releasing tracks from the set over the past few weeks and not a single one disappoints. Listen to The Knocks remix of lead single ‘Closer’ below.

The Knocks: Learn To Fly

Earlier this morning  The Knocks promised us a new track and this afternoon they delivered on that promise with this ‘sing it loud’ anthem Learn To Fly.  It’s a bit of a mish mash of styles with pop, funk and disco all being found here, and as usual it’s an absolute delight. I swear these Brooklyn lads never put a foot wrong.

Dragonette: Let It Go (The Knocks Remix)

A few days ago we brought you the Laidback Luke mix of the infectious new Dragonette single Let It Go, today we’re excited to share The Knocks remix of the track!

When two of our favorites team up on a track we would expect nothing less than magic, and that’s what we’ve got here! It’s an energetic mix packed with hard-hitting beats and sparkling synths galore. These lads seriously never mix miss the mark!

The Knocks: Rest Of Your Life (R.O.Y.L) Video

Brooklyn-based lads The Knocks continue to impress us with everything they release, their latest effort is Rest Of Your Life (R.O.Y.L), and they’ve just released a fantastic video featuring a mash-up of clips submitted by their fans!

I love the video, and I’m a big fan of the Moroder esque sound they employed on the track, mixed with the big vocal on the verse it gives it a real throwback feel.
