Kodaline - High Hopes (Filous Remix)

Not a lot to say about this one. It's cute and floopy. Much improved from the original (Snoozzzzefest2014.). Also while we're on general PSAs: do NOT watch the music video. It's all the cheap emotional trickery of Nicolas Sparks novels and My Sister's Keeper wrapped up in 4 minutes of whining. Or maybe I'm the Grinch, idk. Getting back to the song, I really appreciate a simple remix. Sometimes pepping up the production with a little staccato and splicing the vocals is all you need. Not everything needs Summertime Sadness "I'm at Ultra" rager treatment. Although, Filous, the intro sounds criminally similar to Youth Group's "Forever Young." Now I'm gonna go listen to that. I miss the O.C.
