As the mercury finally begins to rise in our London office summer feels like its truly in the air and to celebrate we’re bring you an exclusive Brandt Brauer Frick remix of indie funsters Everything Everything’s new single ‘Don’t Try’ which drops June 16th. The new release is the band’s summer offering ahead of a packed festival schedule including Parklife, Benicassim, Melt, T in the Park, Glastonbury and Isle of Wight.
Speaking on the original, singer Jonathan Higgs says “Don’t Try is about letting go of control of your emotions. It’s a celebration of feeling, for good or for ill, and a plea to let it show.” Sure we’re fans of the track and agree whole heartedly with Jonathon on his choice of words but feel it in the remix from German trio BBF wherein the effort really springs to life as the outfit have added several new dimensions to the release via the addition of several new vocal parts and lots of new instruments which were specifically recorded for the remix.
As always Brandt Brauer and Frick have delivered a heartfelt rework that offers something very different whilst still retaining the spirit of the original as the trio explain “Everything Everything sent us really great material to work with. At first we didn’t even notice that some of the vocal tracks they had sent us hadn’t even ended up in their final version. So in our remix, you can actually hear some vocal parts that are not in their original song. As always when we remix, we played a lot of new instrumental takes. Here we recorded especially some additional drums, some Juno-106 chords and FX and some Moog bass parts. We wanted to do a more groove-based, dirty and melancholic version of “Don’t Try”.
