Rich Girls (The Twelves Remix)

Song: Rich Girls (The Twelves Remix)
Artist: The Virgins
Album: Rich Girls (single)

The Virgins are an American rock band based in New York City. Their self-titled debut album was released in June of last year and their song “Rich Girls” was number 68 on Rolling Stones list of the best songs of 2008.

The Twelves are a remix duo based in Rio de Janeiro. They have remixed songs for M.I.A., Yelle, Groove Armada, Black Kids, and the New Young Pony Club. Their remix of The Virgin’s track is bouncy and loungy but dark, really stellar.

Very eighties, but not head on copy. I could see either of the bands listed in this section on Top Of the Pops, England 1983. Even the old analog sound drum machines and some cow bell.
