Arcade Fire‘s “Sprawl II” is one of those songs that’s capable of elevating your mood. Something about the serenity of Régine’s voice. Or maybe those soothing instruments. Whatever the reason, “Sprawl II” is one of those go-to songs when you’re having a less than stellar day.
But just when you think that this song can’t make you any happier, Soulwax comes into the picture and flips “Sprawl II” on its head. Adding some funk to the original and giving it an upbeat twist, this remix eerily looks back into time in some strange way, because this is probably what Arcade Fire would’ve sounded like in the 70’s.
