Animal Music have unveiled a unique reworking of The Killers classic 'Mr Brightside' exclusively on Gigwise. Check it out below. 

The emerging group has given the indie classic a drum and bass makeover, channeling the likes of Chase & Status and Netsky. The new track follows their debut single 'We Stay Vacant' and is released today via MUK Recordings.

Lead Singer Pete Pocket said of the new release: "One of our favourite tracks in the world is Mr Brightside by The Killers. We really wanted to take some of our favourite songwriting and rework into the Animal Music production style. Given that this is such a loved and iconic piece of music to start with we are aware that this is a bold move. A Marmite move. Maybe even a kamikaze move. However music and art isn't about playing it safe and we love what we have ended up with."

 Listen to the reworking of 'Mr Brightside' below:

The group are set to release their debut album later this year as well as embarking on a series of live shows. On the group's progress, Pete goes on to say: “We’ve been forging our sound in the studio and playing shows endlessly for the last two years without putting anything out. It’s like we’ve stolen a plane and been flying on fumes. Now we need to fill the tank. Obviously it will be incredible to go and play the four corners of the planet, taking the music to everyone so they can see and hear it for themselves.”
