Wye Oak remixes Sylvan Esso’s “Play It Right” — listen

on January 20, 2015, 1:32pm

Last year, Baltimore duo Wye Oak reimagined Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill”, providing the new wave ballad with fresh flourishes of R&B vitality. Now, the indie rockers have worked their magic on another number, remixing Sylvan Esso’s 2014 single “Play It Right”.

Wye Oak stretch the glitchy original into a true synthpop face-melter, weaving in head-spinning, psychedelic elements at every turn. The way the two-piece suspend the song’s chorus in mid-air is an especially woozy, well-executed moment that’s sure to leave you anxiously awaiting the drop. Listen in below.

“Play It Right” is off Sylvan Esso’s self-titled debut. Meanwhile, Wye Oak’s Shriek is out now.
