New York songwriter Ariana & The Rose produces some of the prettiest melodies and lucid lyrics out there, so it was a bit of a surprise to hear such a hard-edged remix come through our letterbox (as it were).

Here it is though, a cold, synth-heavy remix of 'Heartbeat' by NO CEREMONY/// which takes that raw emotion and beats it down with layers of dampened, clinical electronics. Somehow that makes things even more heart-piercingly poignant.

"Pop shouldn't be a guilty pleasure. It's time," says Ariana, "for pop girls to be cool again." We couldn't agree more.

You can listen to the track below. Ariana & The Rose's second EP will be released on November 18th.
