Local Natives Soften The Rock Edge Of Manchester Orchestra’s ‘Bed Head’ With A New Remix

Manchester Orchestra are a few months removed from the release of their latest album, The Million Masks Of God. Songs like the single “Bed Head” are in-your-face rockers, but that’s not the only thing they’re capable of being. This was proven today with a new remix of that song from Local Natives. The rework goes decidedly lighter, giving the song softer, more dance-ready instrumentation.

Andy Hull recently told Uproxx of the band’s new album, “We knew we really wanted from the beginning for it to be all connected in a similar way as Black Mile, but more thought out, and allowing the songs to fold in on each other. And having repeated melodies and phrases that, at the end of the second song, is the same melody and lyrical nod to the fifth song. That happens all over the record. Throwing out the rule book that we had made for ourselves about even what a song can be. It’s been a really difficult record to pick a single and pick songs to play for people, because I do feel like it’s best served as a whole thing. The album’s the song.”
