Last fall, Cleveland indie-pop quartet, The Lighthouse and the Whaler, released their sophomore LP, This Is an Adventure, weeks before they performed at our most recent installment of Culture Collide. They also made a dreamy, ingenious rendition of Peter Gabriel's beloved So tune, "That Voice Again," but it was during our 2012 Culture Collide extravaganza that TLATW discussed a future collaboration with Nashville-based hip-hop artist, Chancellor Warhol, over slices of Two Boots pizza.

Below is what became of that conversation. The twinkling glockenspiel, percussion, and violin-packed hit off This Is an Adventure, "Venice," is now a thumping remix featuring Chancellor Warhol's rapping alongside Michael LoPresti's infectious curiosity: Why don't we fall in love?
According to LoPresti, "It was impressive that Chance was able to take our original song and use its elements to make something completely unique. It holds the emotion of the song while morphing and evolving into something new." Check it out for yourself right now!
