The Amplifetes are a 4-piece band out of Sweden that came together in 2008 with a shared love for analog instruments, Electric Light Orchestra, and 60s Psychadelia. After their debut album in 2010, the foursome from Stockholm returned to the studio for their sophomore album, Where Is The Light, which is slated for release by the end of this year. Fellow Swede Samuel Onervas has put together a fantastic, Indie Dance remix to the single, showcasing catchy vocal Ooh’s and forward percussion, reminding me a bit of some of the Cut Copy remixes we used to hear a few years back. Listen below and read on after the jump to check out the interactive video game that The Amplifetes created to accompany the single that gives one winner a chance to go to The Northern Lights in the Arctic Circle!
