I’ve had a soft spot for pretty girls who can sing for as long as I can remember, and Alex Winston is no exception.
The gorgeous, opera-trained singer/songwriter from Detroit gave Motown a new meaning with her latest LP King Con, and following the release there have been a number of solid remixes redefining various tracks spread throughout the album.
The Sound of Arrows’ remix of Winston’s track “Guts” may be my favorite yet, as it does what a good remix should do: put the song in a different light. Not only does Sound of Arrows provide some umph to the normally ethereal track, but they venture into a land we haven’t seen them transcend before. This remix will put some hop in your step as you head home from the office, and has been on repeat in mine for the past 30 minutes.
Dance on fellow Shufflers, it’s Friday.
