We're streaming a great rejig of 'Heartbeat'

Perhaps it's the sharp structures and minimalism of Wire that lends them to such magnificent cover versions - we're thinking that great Fischerspooner take on 'The 15th', My Bloody Valentine's 'Map Ref. 41°N 93°W', Minor Threat doing '12XU', Elastica's 'Connection'. Now, Gazelle Twin has stepped up to deliver a brilliant, spooky version of 'Heartbeat' (itself given a few runs by Big Black). The cover of 'Heartbeat' features on Gazelle Twin's new EP Mammal, which is released on January 28th and features new music, along with remixes by Kuedo, Alixander III, Renaissance Man and Clint Mansell.
