Listen to Hodor's first club-banging dance song

Kristian Nairn, the actor best known for role as Hodor in Game of Thrones, was absent from this show's freshly conlcuded season. The thespian spent his time off establishing himself as a popular DJ. Nairn isn't another one of those jockeys capitalizing on fame, while occasionally rearranging songs on an iTunes playlist. He's produced his own song.

"Up / Beacon (feat. Leanne Robinson)" is a pop-friendly club ditty that reminds this listener of the high school dance floors of the 1990s. Then again, every club song reminds me of the high school dance floors of the 1990s. Because I have no experience in actual clubs. Because I'm a nerd who's intimidated by loud noises and heavy bass.

My idea of a good time is uploading this song into Garage Band, overlaying a couple dozens samples of Nairn shouting "Hodor," and speculating on how the show will redeem itself after this season. I'm a simple human with simple needs.
