Compared to the original, the remix from Toro y Moi is far more haunting and sinister in feel. Moreno’s multiple verses are set against stripped-back synths and a warped chorus from Polachek.
Listen to the remix below:
Polachek has also shared ‘Pang’ remixes by George Clanton, Oklou and umru as part of the release. A remix of ‘So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings’ by A.G. Cook was released last year.
Earlier this year, Polachek also shared a short film to accompany an extended mix of her song ‘The Gate’.
The releases are taken from new deluxe remix LP ‘Standing At The Gate : Remix Collection’ which will arrive on April 16 next year on vinyl featuring the previously released A.G. Cook remix of ‘So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings’.
It also features versions of ‘New Normal’ and ‘Parachute’ taken from her debut album ‘Pang’ as well as a cover of The Corrs ‘Breathless’.
The remix LP will be pressed on limited 12” grey vinyl and available to pre-order now.
Polachek released ‘Pang’ in October last year. NME gave the album a four-star review upon its release, writing “the Chairlift singer has crystallised years of musical exploration (which included a Beyoncé co-write) into her innovative first solo record under her own name”.
“Bold and brazen – a yearning pang in sonic form – this album is a concentration of Polachek’s previous releases. She’s combined the joy of Chairlift, the atmospheric mastery of Ramona Lisa and the experimentalism of CEP. The result is a Caroline Polachek record in its most distilled and fully realised form.”
An instrumental version of ‘Pang’ was released on Polachek’s Bandcamp back in April.
