BANKS - Change (Dream Koala Remix)
Introduced to our pages via September’s reader-approved This Is What It Feels Like, indie R&B songstress BANKS returns to the Booth with a fresh single off her latest EP. But this version of Change has undergone a few, uh, changes from its original incarnation. Whereas its prototype (not featured on our pages) featured a slowly-building live arrangement by Tim Anderson, the remix gets an added shot of adrenaline courtesy of Dream Koala. The European beatsmith’s instrumental incorporates heavier synths, vocal sampling and a more powerful percussion rhythm, but leaves enough aural space to preserve the impact of the Harvest Records signee’s emotionally raw verses. Fans can find the original version of Change and much more on BANKS’ London EP, out on iTunes as of September 26.
