Premiere: Listen to a glitchy new remix of Woodes' Rise, courtesy of Litche
The emerging Newcastle name completely switches up the soothing original, adding dark crashes of percussion to the soft vocals.
Released as the opening single of her gorgeous self-titled EP last year, Rise saw quickly-rising Melbourne singer-songwriter Woodes deliver with a beautifully-pieced single that dazzled with brilliant vocal work and a snapping, tone-matching instrumental. Today we premiere an equally impressive remix of the single, with Litche - one-half of Australian duo Luunes - add a dark, glitchy-like touch to the single's brooding feel. The remix opens with Woodes' softly-sung vocals, which is joined a few moments later by a stripped-back percussion line and gradually-building melodies. For the song's chorus, Litche craftily switches out Woodes' vocals in favour of a more chopped-up vocal, which howls above a dark, glitchy instrumental, crunching with rounds of echoing percussion. "Elle (Woodes) reached out to me just after the release of her debut EP asking me if I’d like to do a remix of her third single Rise." says Litche on the remix's birth. "We connected a few months earlier over the Internet, out of appreciation for each other’s music. I was stoked that I was asked to do the remix because I was a big fan of her music and Rise was easily my favourite song from the EP.” Listen to the remix below.
