Florence and the Machine Shares IDLES Remix of ‘Heaven Is Here’
Florence and the Machine has shared a remix of her Dance Fever track ‘Heaven Is Here’ by the Bristol post-punk band IDLES. Listen to it below.
“IDLES are one of my favourite bands and I’ve been wanting to work on something together for a while,” Florence Welch explained in a statement. “It might be strange for people to think but I see a lot of symbiosis in what we do in terms of live performance. Connection above all else. Joyful rage and togetherness. A lot of people wished that Heaven Is Here was longer. And I think IDLES have done the perfect job at turning it into a much demanded dance track that loses nothing of the hex at its heart.”
IDLES’s Mark Bowen added: “Dance Fever is quite a cathartic album for me, speaking a lot to the yearning for the release of performing but also introspecting on the need itself. It lives on the line of tension between the need for release and getting it (is that not the best bit?) no more is this encapsulated on ‘Heaven is Here’. I wanted to sit with that tension but then also lavish in the release on this remix.”
