|Woodhands Hit The Road, Prep New Album And Remix Peter, Bjorn & John!
Toronto electro-duo Woodhands is back! The band has started into a set of tour dates in the US armed with a new remix of Peter Bjorn & John’s song “Nothing To Worry About”. They are also looking forward to performing at this year’s Monolith Festival at Red Rocks. Woodhands is currently working on the follow-up to their celebrated debut from last spring, Heart Attack. The album will be called Remorsecapade and is due out on Paper Bag Records later this year.
In celebration of their return to the US, the band are offering up this remix for mp3 download. Daniel Werb from Woodhands talks about the remix a bit, “…remixing Peter, Bjorn and John was a thrill for us and we wanted to make sure that we didn’t just try to ape what they were doing. The vocal lines are so strong that it was easy to build a dance track around them, and the acoustic piano in the back end was our way of bringing out the sadness in the voice while still keeping the track bouncing. And somehow, even though we sped everything up, our version comes out twice as long. Dance music: go figure.”

Woodhands has been touring constantly, with stops across North America, Japan, China, and Europe. Recently, Werb and Paul Banwatt have also been cranking out remixes and cover tracks that have been attracting high-level praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and NME. After the success of their cover for Eddy Grant’s one-hit wonder “Electric Avenue” (blessed by Eddy himself!), Woodhands tackled Katy Perry’s hit single “I Kissed a Girl.” Their live show has to be seen to be believed: no pre-programmed samples, no laptops, no safety net: just two hyperkinetic, high-energy performers bringing the party as hard as possible, a little different each time.
