Kasum Takes Us To 2002 With Fresh Remix Of Avril Lavigne's "Complicated"

Friday, August 07, 2015

It was only a matter of time before Kasum headed into the territory of the songstress of the pop-punk era, Avril Lavigne. Although it's a toss-up between "Complicated" and "Sk8r Boi" for best track off her album, Let Go, we'll be content with the Boston/NY talent's choice in "Complicated" for his latest remix. He has tapped rising singer Megan Hamilton to provide the cover vocal on the track, and Kasum slides in to provide a little bolster on the back-up role. Keeping it uplifting yet grungy, Kasum tends to Avril's whining lyrics but keeps it hypnotic with his rolling melodies, and about two minutes and twelve seconds in, he takes us home with a head-banging guitar riff that we can't help but love. It's another great pop-punk turned dancefloor heater from Kasum and he thankfully has put it up for free download as well.
