Alex Watts & the Foreign Tongue

The power of the internet has resulted in a unique collaboration between Australian rock band Alex Watts & the Foreign Tongue and Lars Rosenblad, a beatmaker from Karlsted, Sweden. Rosenblad's was the winning entry in a remixing competition held for the band's 2013 single, Warned. The result is a meeting of styles that remains true to the song's emotional content whilst placing it in an entirely different musical setting. Freed from the live band backing of the original track, Rosenblad's synthesisers and drum loops give singer-songwriter Alex Watts' vocals the space to breath, opening the song up and taking it in a direction that is as surprising as it is powerful.

Taking the concept one step further, Watts decided to 'remix' both the cover art and the film clip of Warned, resulting in this distinctively original video.

"Warned (Lars Rosenblad Remix)" is out on November 5th, 2013 through Astound Records.
