Future Islands, “Doves” (Vince Clarke Remix)

Post Author:

Synthpop legend Vince Clarke (of Depeche Mode and Erasure fame) is lending his finesse for hip-popping production to a remix of Future Islands‘s “Doves” from their 4AD Singles release.

Channeling his reputation as an earworm-inducing hit-maker, Clarke applied his glistening production touch to the already dramatic and glamour-filled track. Stripped down to the bare ’80s essentials, it’s all clap track and poignant piano lines underpinning the slick vocals that come courtesy of the inimitable Samuel T. Herring.

Excuse the joke, but we honestly “Just Can’t Get Enough” of this.
