Premiere :: ANR - Stay Kids (Visions of Trees S0O Dilated RMX)

Named for one of George Washington's lesser known pet names for his new nation, ANR (Awesome New Republic) are the champions of a burgeoning local indie scene in their hometown Miami. Their latest album, Stay Kids, is a fully realized exposition of that program, beautifully synthesizing decades of operatic power-pop and psych into something a whole helluva lot like what you'd expect to hear coming out of a stadium. In anticipation of their SXSW dates and the album's official release, our chums Joni and Sara of London's Visions of Trees gave the title track an impressive club treatment that somehow comes off as more intimate, raising the pitch of John Hancock's vocals higher than his falsetto already took them and reigning in the arena rock guitar section.
