"Cortney Tidwell has confirmed details of the first single to be taken from her forthcoming album Boys which is, according to Tidwell, 'about two kids in love, fighting, and they eventually kill themselves. It's a modern day Romeo and Juliet.' Undeniably one of the most electronic songs she's written, it calls upon diverse influences like New Order and Depeche Mode and packs a typically impressive melodic punch. The track will be available as a special single edit, and is accompanied by exclusive mixes and an A Cappella version. After the success of Ewan Pearson's remix of the title track to her debut album Don't Let Stars Keep Us Tangled Up (a Pitchfork Track Of The Year 2007) duties are this time handled by Simon Baker and Daphni. Baker's remixes for Radioslave and Simian Mobile Disco have confirmed his status as one of the most exciting DJs and producers around, and he gives the track a technicolor tech-house workover perfect for summer twilight. Daphni -­ aka Dan Snaith, aka Caribou -­ has meanwhile turned in a fourteen minute monster, a trippy techno bastard that sneaks up gently, growing relentlessly until it leaves listeners dizzy and euphoric."
