Morten: “Look Closer” (Candyland remix) [PRMD]
Krewella’s Get Wet tour openers Candyland rearrange Avicii’s buddy Morten Breum’s summer crooner “Look Closer,” slowing it down enough to add some swing and some heavy drops. As their name implies, Candyland is a DJ duo that knows how to have a good time. While Breum’s original can lean towards sentimental (in that wonderful “I’m having a moment on this dancefloor” kind of way), this remix doesn’t take itself or the emotional pull of the lyrics too seriously, making this worth a closer listen.
