PAPA – I Am The Lion King (St. Lucia Remix)


PAPA‘s EP, A Good Woman Is Hard To Find, can certainly stand on its own; it’s been well-received by critics everywhere and has helped propel the band’s popularity in the chattering blogosphere. But that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with somebody else taking “I Am The Lion King” — a fantastic track off the release — and making it a bit “dance-ier.” In comes St. Lucia. Fresh off announcing they would be releasing an LP with Neon Gold Records, the New Noise and All Things Gold alumnus transforms the indie rock jam into a killer remix. St. Lucia’s take amplifies the high-end guitar of the original and gives it a tropical, synth-pop treatment, adding in airy wind chimes and dreamy background keys. And just wait for the acoustic guitar breakdown. You’ll feel like you’re floating.
