Ahead of their North American tour dates, CHVRCHES have released a remix of their song “We Sink” by tourmate James Hinton a.k.a. the Range. Hinton’s version lingers on Lauren Mayberry’s vocals as a spine throughout, raising the pitch, looping and slowing them down just slightly. It’s a striking feeling to hear the Glasgow synth-pop trio’s breakneck pace changed even slightly. The lush synths of the original track are stripped down and combined with a string arrangement into a thick undercurrent supporting the Range’s trademark quick hitting snares, handclaps and metronomic beats. Hinton is obviously undaunted by the task of changing what’s already such an exceptional track, as he manages to leave enough of the original to make the source recognizable, but adds plenty to make this mix his. Stream it below.
