Listen To Deluka’s “OMFG (Kids Of 88 Remix)”: Idolator Premiere

Deluka laces its electropop with growling guitars and shadowy synths, a cocktail that has turned the Birmingham four-piece (now based in Brooklyn) into the emerging band of choice for rockers who like to dance and dancers who like to rock. “OMFG”, the latest single from their acclaimed debut full-length, You Are The Night, is an anxious, sweaty jam that will drag you to the dancefloor whether you like it or not. (It’s also a “sucker punch to the face”, in the best sense). We’re f’g stoked to premiere the new remix by New Zealand’s Kids Of 88 (who added a lush, dreamy spin), below.

“OMFG” has been a magnet for remixers, including great flips by Lauren Flax and Innerpartysystem. But the Kids Of 88 version has a special neon kick.

It’s little wonder that the band has been regarded as “the UK’s best-kept secret” by Z!NK. But you should really see them live to feel their full effect. (Gosh, if only someone had booked them to play a Northside fest showcase.)
