Songs from their jaunty, eponymous debut album will get the remix treatment from the likes of Ra Ra Riot and Two Door Cinema Club. They're also hosting a remix contest, wherein YTG fans can tinker with and create their own versions of the album's songs, the best of which will appear on the EP. In the meantime, the boys were kind enough to let us premiere the Tokyo Police Club's version of "My Body," a slowed-down, synth-heavy, occasionally underwater-y sounding interpretation of the hit song. Stream it below.
