Fittingly delivered in time for Halloween, Intended Immigration's cover of "I Want Candy" is a high-energy, jazz-infused, drum-driven danceable ditty that blends an electronic house beat with the pounding pulse of a jazz kit.
The sweet sound of swing era instruments provides a sonic sugar rush around the candy-craving female vocalist and you can clearly hear producer Thomas Feurer's loving and admiring nod to some of his genre-defining favorites such as Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman and Clark Terry.
If your ears want candy, don't trick them, treat them to this.
