Phoenix – Fences (EarthMoonEarth Remix)
Fences is probably the most intriguing track from Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix – simultaneously mellow & catchy, wildy original, and featuring what may be the best three notes ever played on a CS80 (sorry, Vangelis!). Expect no such restraint from us! This remix takes a much more upbeat approach, evolving from subtlety to an all-out dance party by the chorus. Touches of 80s-synth nostalgia weave between a pulsing, syncopated bass and swirling arps. A new micro-edited chorus countermelody has been fashioned out of Thomas Mar’s vocal, which sprawls into the bridge, and builds to the drop! We’ve got a suspicion this remix’s vibe will be as appropriate while wearing a suit/dress as a Tears For Fears t-shirt, so get it in that NYE playlist!
