Let me start by saying that I adore the original version of this track. I think it’s because the elegant melody and lyrics about killing your lover resonate with the dormant she-devil stirring within me. Or, you know, maybe because it’s an awesome song.
Leave it to RÜFÜS to take a gossamer Odesza tune and transform it into a version worthy of a progressive house set. The highlight of this track is the sharp, metallic percussion that gives it a relentless momentum.
The Australian dance trio disperses Zyra’s chopped vocals and throws in some trancey, Above & Beyond-esque flourishes to keep you moving. The reverberant layers of down-pitched vocals create a sound that enhances the sinister lyrical content. Perfect for satisfying all your dark repressed thoughts.
