So, yeah, Glaswegian ElectroPop overlords Chvrches’ début track, Lies, is, as suspected, getting re-released with a full reMix package. The version of the track on their stunning début album, The Bones Of What You Believe, we a re-recorded version anyway, so it kinda’ makes sense. Also, it’s a strong-as-hell song that deserves wider exposure than it got first time around. So it’s all good.
the first of the reMixes to break cover comes from London producer Tourist who eases you slowly into the tune with a lush piano and vocal intro. This clean, and haunting, take on the song lasts for almost half the reMixes length, before Tourist flips the tune into a Bass heavy Deep House groover with hints of Chicago here and there. It;s compelling stuff, but you can;t help but feel like it’s not quite there. Don;t get us wrong, Tourist’s mix is full of amazing ideas and a beautiful sonic pallet, but unfortunately it never really delivers on the amazingness it promises, leaving it always just short of perfection. Still, a worthy addition to the Chvrches reMix pantheon and one we hope to be dancing to in a club soon.
