- Warrior (The xx Remix) by Magic Wands
Who are these? No Idea but there’s a The XX mix on the B side so there’s obviously a bit of clout behind them. The B side (which is the original track hence I’m doing it first) is a nice piece of rinky- dink synth pop somewhere between Ladytron and Broadcast circa ‘America’s Boy”. Its nice simple stuff. No frills. At one point she sings ‘ I would like a cup of tea’. So would I love. So would I.
Ok then lets see what The XX do. Well its very slinky. Sounding almost nothing like the music heard on the A side (it is a different track after all) its a sleazy, slippery customer with some pounding drums and a male vocal this time. The refrain of “I can’t cool down” brings back memories of not being able to get to sleep last night as I’d put the heating on and made everything too hot. Worth a tenner? Hmmm.
