Premiere: Hear a New Planningtorock Remix
The English musician turns her hand to Evvol's darkwave cut 'Sola.'
Berlin-based darkwave act Evvol—a duo comprised of Irish singer Julie Chance and Australian multi-instrumentalist Jane Arnison— released its debut LP, Eternalism, in July of last year. Operating in pop music’s dark corners, Eternalism introduced the world to a sound that is anchored in industrial-tinged experimentalism and neo-noir electronica.
In support of Evvol’s forthcoming EP, Physical L.U.V.—which will be released via !K7 Records on May 13—English musician and performer Planningtorock has applied her left-field touch to “Sola,” the second cut from Eternalism. Infusing the track with a quirky gallop, Planningtorock pitches down the vocals into woozy territory, adding a danceable rhythm to the slow-burning original, as she explains:
“I loved how Julie and Jane’s voices sounded pitched down – they suddenly got this super soft and sultry quality that together with the cheeky flutes and fast rhythm sounded great.”
Ahead of the release of Physical L.U.V., you can stream Planningtorock’s remix of “Sola” via the player above—which features a haunting artwork by Stefan Fähler.
