When RAC and Matthew Koma got together for the 2014 summer anthem "Cheap Sunglasses," something magical happened. For RAC, an artist first known for his genre-crossing remix work as part of a former duo, it was a strong move towards original production under a solo guise. For Matthew Koma, who's lent his croons on the hit tracks of superstar DJs ranging from Tiësto to Zedd, it placed his voice firmly in the realm of indie-dance crossover.

While the two artists, friends, and collaborators created a radio-friendly summer jam with their original, being the creative minds they are, the buck didn't stop there. RAC and Koma recently came to THUMP's LA studio to transform "Cheap Sunglasses" into a stripped down acoustic beauty, flexing their musicianship to the max, and we've got the video to prove it.
