STREAM: Little Daylight – “Overdose” (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Cutesy indie pop outfit Little Daylight are no strangers to reworking tracks, but recently their own ultra fun single, “Overdose,” has gotten quite the dosage of remix treatment itself.

One particular standout version of the hit song comes from “wise beyond their years and aggressively handsome” New York City duo, The Chainsmokers, who’ve taken the somewhat subdued dance jam and tweaked it to a more club-friendly alternative. It certainly has us smiling and dancing and we can’t imagine that it won’t have you doing the same.

You can listen to the bright, building remix and download it for …
