What happens when two of our favorite new Australian bands get together? The answer lies in this deliciously funky remix of Melbourne’s synth-pop duo GL superb slow jam “What Happened To Us? (already posted here) by fellow Aussie band and labelmates Retiree, who impressed us earlier this year with their self-titled debut EP. On their remix of “What Happened To Us?, Retiree add plenty of disco-funk vibes, even their own vocals, to deliver something special with a decidedly tropical feel to it. What a ride! Today, we’re pretty excited to bring you the exclusive premiere of this remix. Blast it above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.
The original track appears on GL’s self-titled debut EP, out now via Sydney label Plastic World. The EP really marks the duo of Graeme Pogson and Ella Thompson, lovers of all things ’80s, boogie and cosmic-funk, as one to watch. Below, you can watch the video for the track “Take Me Back”, directed by Eugene Ward. You can buy the EP here.
