SOAK – “Blud (Chvrches Remix)”
We premiered the video for SOAK’s intimate debut single a few weeks back, and mentioned that she was the first signee to Chvrches’ new label, so perhaps it was inevitable that they’d give her the remix treatment. Chvrches blow “Blud” out to grand proportions, applying their synth-pop wizardry here. Bridie Monds-Watson’s voice is soft and shy, which makes for a fantastic pairing once all of the outsized electronic fireworks begin going off. I know SOAK’s whole aesthetic is more as a singer-songwriter, but this remix makes it hard not to want more of this from her. Listen below.
