Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Heads Will Roll"

Passion Pit is hot off its recent release Manners, and the Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ are riding high on It’s Blitz! so combining the two can only make for a stellar project.

That project is personified in today’s release of YYYs “Heads will Roll” a selection of four remixes of “Heads will Roll” off of It’s Blitz!

Considering it is a pretty spectacular song to start with, once Passion Pit gets its synth saturated hooks in it it makes for a must listen.

Also included are remixes by Tommie Sunshine, Little Vampire and James Iha. All good, but all fall short compared to the Passion Pit version.

While all have a similar sound, each has its own distinct beat and cadence to them.  Although it’s hard to beat the original version.
