This sound truly astounds me. This is stand-alone music. This. is. it. Maybe I’m being slightly melodramatic, but I need to stop replaying this so I won’t tire of its perfection, like that really good book you wish you could go back and read anew. Today I bring you another of Australian artist, Oliver Tank’s, masterful remixes. This time he covers a song by fellow compatriot, Gossling, whose track, “Never Expire,” is a gem in and of itself. Tank captures the distinctive Tegan and Sara-esque indie pop vocals of lead singer, Helen Croome, that are so ingeniously arranged over the hazy guitar melodies and subtly layered synths of her single. Oliver artfully arranges these sounds into an indescribable amalgamation of ambient, electronic, lo-fi, chillwave and indie pop references. Just remember to breath, because this track is bound to leave you breathless.
That’s two relationships I had to watch them both end,
But see it messed with me, the two people I trusted most,
I could shrug it off on drunkness but fuck them both,
See that switched something inside of me,
A beast came alive in me and started just eating away the pride in me,
Because we’re known to make mistakes and I’ve grown to make a change,
I was different back then, but now I ain’t the same.
