LISTEN: Stars and Diamond Rings Remix Each Other’s Hits and Tour Together

Contrary to what it sounds like, Stars and Diamond Rings is not a combination of marshmallows you'd find within a box of Lucky Charms. They are a pretty sweet blend of Canadian acts though—the former a celebrated indie rock band and the latter a solo synthpop artist named John O.— and they have truly outdone themselves by doing untraditional, yet equally awesome versions of each other's music. Listen to both remixes below via SoundCloud and scroll down just a bit further for U.S. and Canada tour dates.

Check out Stars' booming yet intimate, stripped down version of "Runaway Love," off of Diamond Rings' upcoming LP, Free Dimensional (available October 22).

You're gonna have Diamond Rings' far out, discothèque version of "The Theory Of Relativity" (the opener off of The North, released September 4 via Soft Revolution Records) on repeat. Listen to the entire record on SoundCloud here.
