Death Cab For Cutie has decided to give their latest album, Codes and Keys, the remix treatment. The forthcoming EP, Keys and Codes, is set to drop on 11/22 and will feature seven tracks getting electrified by various artists. In the weeks leading up to the release, Death Cab will feature tracks on their website, which brings us to The 2 Bears cut of "You Are A Tourist." The 2 Bears, the side project of Hot Chip's Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell, glitch out Ben Gibbard's vocals to give the track the hallmark stamp of a remix, taking the jumpy guitar riff of the original and passing it through synth over a rubbery bass line. The basic kick/snare combo gives the song a very dance-friendly quality that could play in a loud, over-packed club just as easily as it could be heard on a college radio station. If you didn't think it was possible to fist-pump to Death Cab, take a listen to the track below.




Codes and Keys is out now.
