Back in May I came across the Brit pop group Citizens! and their EP “Caroline” released on the Kitsuné label. For me, the EP is hit or miss and the title track is the weakest link. It’s a simple pop track with a chorus that can be repetitive or downright tedious. However, after several plays I did begin to feel that the track was a perfect candidate for the remix.
While there are several remixes of Caroline, I’ve found that fellow label mate and producer Charlie Yin’s (AKA Giraffage) remix to be the best. Yin inserts a catchy beat, some gorgeous bloops and bleeps, and does a fantastic job of reworking the tiresome chorus. All of these elements turn it into a nice dreamy tune. Check it out.
