Cape Town band Civil Twilight are currently holding a remix contest over at Indaba Music and this is one of the latest reworks to surface. Indie rock band Ra Ra Riot punch up “River,” putting it on the fast track with electronic urgency. The remix still holds onto the haunting quality of the original, but it’s moments like the bridge’s glistening cascading synths or the heavy beating outro that make this rendition absolutely memorable.

Civil Twilight’s Holy Weather is out now on Wind-Up. Ra Ra Riot’s The Orchard is out on Barsuk.
