Why do we like this?

Saxsyndrum's take on Lykke Li's "Dance, Dance, Dance" is a lot like the single's artwork: pretty and colorful. The only difference is that the track's palette is even more iridescent than the purple, blue, and orange hues that adorn the illustration.  

The Montreal duo's version is a jazzier rendition, where ripples of sax and synth mimic the tapping beats that were ubiquitous on Li's song. It's a less percussive sound, fluttering with a cadence that in a way feels spontaneous. Contributing to that spontaneity are chimes of cascading piano notes and violin strings that sporadically present themselves at various moments.

Saxsyndrum's cover is audibly ornate, yet despite the added instrumentation, the pair retains the original tune's sparseness, only they've set a more tranquil soundscape that's as delicate as Sea Oleena's hush vocals.
