The original “Night Light”–and it’s sensual video–is a perfect slice of late night R&B wherein Jessie Ware turns her star factor up to eleven and goes for broke. It’s also a nice canvas for others; Hot Chip and Perseus have used the gently rolling track for their own reworkings.
Now comes a remix courtesy of British indie stalwarts Wild Beasts. The group keeps that downtempo feel, but they turn the rhythm into a martial beat. Every snare hit feels like a heartbeat, and the song goes from subtle longing to addictive pining in a few short minutes. Take a listen below. [GvB]
