BEST NEW TRACKS: JOSH RECORD "WIDE AWAKE" (DARKSTARS REMIX)"

6/13/14

It's ALL-LONDON-EVERYTHING for today's top new song, Josh Record "Wide Awake (Darkstars Remix)." You see, the reason I say it's ALL-LONDON-EVERYTHING is because both these artists are from London. Try and keep up.

Josh Record is an emerging singer-songwriter originally from Stroud, wherever the hell that is. Record's debut LP, Pillars, is due out this summer. For promotional purposes, and also because it's just a really good song, mysterious London production team Darkstars decided to remix Pillars' lead single, "Wide Awake." While you may not have heard of either of these acts, in the wake of their collaboration lies a hauntingly lovely bit of dream pop that could sooth the wildest of beasts.

Well probably not, but it makes for great listening. Hit play and get ready to relax.
