Summertime is here and with the long warm days a slew of songs and remixes will surge to try and secure the coveted title of "Best Summer Jam of 2014."
The Scottish electronic band, Chvrches debut single, "The Mother We Share," was originally released in November 2012 but then re-released in the UK in September 2013 and featured on iTunes as Single of the Week for the week of September 24. Their debut album, "The Bones of What You Believe," originally released in September 2013 was also re-released on April 22, 2014 with a handful of bonus material.
"The Mother We Share" has gained a significant amount of air play and popularity since its debut and re-release which has catapulted the song further. Lead singer, Lauren Mayberry's, sweet vocals allow the track the perfect melodic touch to mellow out the electronics. Whether the song falls under the Best Summer Jam category or not, it's great and needs no tweaking. But the single contains just the right amount of electronic ingredients fit for a remix and dutifully done so by electronic music producer, Blood Diamonds, and Scottish DJ, JD Twitch.
A new remix has surfaced fusing "The Mother We Share," with pop punk band Blink-182's 2001 single, "First Date," by Dr. Brixx, called "Forever." Both songs equally pop heavy and catchy on their own, but you can have a listen of them together here and grab a free download while you're at it.
