Some mighty fine remixes of FRND’s tender melting single Be Happy have been surfacing this past week, which comes as no surprise considering how mellifluously moving & melancholic stirring the Koala loving artist from Los Angeles proved himself to be on his fine electronic/pop piece. Chicago two piece The White Panda, whom we adore both for their remixing and mashup talent, has given Be Happy one of our favorite edits. They stay true to the original’s dewy eyed sentiment as they endow the track with an exhilarating dose of elastic purring, nimble springing energy. The White Panda’s regal thrumming, plump prancing remix is a free download, here.

There seems to be several artists in the scene who harbor a fondness for koalas, including the likes of Shura, and this enigmatic producer musician from Los Angeles, FRND. He releases his latest single via a Billboard premiered music video featuring his animated incarnation The Koala. Be Happy is a melancholia tinged indie electronica meets pop piece that some describe as “emo-electronic”. Even its indie electronica is genre defying, as it traverses between chill house and melodic bass. It’s infinitely hooking and deeply stirring. The video for Be Happy centers around an emotional journey after a relationship. The bittersweetly melting crossover gem is out now on iTunes, here.
