The Armed is now streaming their remix of Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum's single "Ketamine." The remix was recently featured in the closing credits of a new episode of Dexter: New Blood, which makes sense given Dexter actor Michael C. Hall is the vocalist for Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum.
"Ultrapop is more than a critically-acclaimed, game-changing, genre-defining album," said The Armed frontman Dan Greene. "It is a language. It is a tool set. It is its own vernacular. This adaptation of 'Ketamine' is an exercise in translation. And in the spirit of the dialect, the result is all things, at once. It is delicate and earnest. It is exhilarating. Terrifying. It is excessive and ruthless."
"We three are all big fans of The Armed and their album Ultrapop," said Princess Goes' drummer Peter Yanowitz. "It's been on constant rotation since it came out a year ago. When we reached out to Dan Greene on Instagram, he was honest about how utterly mangled our song would get in the meat grinder of their immense creativity. We were prepared for something different, and boy did they exceed even our high expectations. For us it was a dream to have a band we admire so much collaborate on something we made. This is such an imaginative, explosive odyssey that they took 'Ketamine' on, so all we can do is sit back and tip our hats in awe."
