We heard Australian trio SAFIA’s new single a few weeks ago when they announced they’d be touring with Lorde. “Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds” was already a spacey take on R&B, but the new remix from Akouo makes the song sound more even more warped than even before. It’s filled with bass squelches, laser synths, and pitch-shifted vocals while still retaining the song’s original groove. Listen below.
