London Grammar — Hey Now (Kilter Remix)
Let's get something straight — there's little, if any, room for improvement on a single one of the tracks off London Grammar's debut album If You Wait. Hannah Reid's ethereal vocals alongside spotless production make for an unmatched combination, and their live show is well, extraordinary, to say the least. That being said, we've seen many producers attempt remixes of the trio, but few and far between really do the original justice while simultaneously making it wholly their own. Enter, Kilter. Earlier this week the Australian talent unleashed his rework of the albums lead track Hey Now, delivering a spectacularly arranged tropical landscape that elevates, not diminishes, the existing vocal work through steadily-building layers of punchy handclaps, buoyant chords, and vibrating apexes. He's transformed it's airy, delicacy into an uplifting celebration taken to exactly the right level of energy. Well played, we say. Stream the remix in all it's glory below.
