Listen & Watch: Mr. Little Jeans, “Good Mistake” (Young & Sick Remix)

Mr. Little Jeans

It’s the year 2014 and, suffice to say, the use of labels and categories becomes more and more blurred by the day. Mr. Little Jeans, isn’t actually a ‘mister’ at all, a fact made clear by discovering the Norwegian singer’s birth name: Monica Birkenes. That, and hearing  her beautifully airy vocals are enough to make anyone a believer in this new age of female empowerment. Her song “Good Mistake” is the lead single off of her debut LP Pocket Knife and it uses a flurry of retro synths, post-dubstep elements, and sharp guitar riffs to an amazing effect. A recent remix of the song by Young & Sick has surfaced, as they transform “Good Mistake” from a rebellious ballad to an enticing slice of slow-rolling synthpop. Both versions are worth your precious time, and the slightly heartbreaking video for the original song (below) also deserves your attention. Do it.  (via WeLikeItIndie)
