Silly Thoughts (Balam Acab Remix) – Mathieu Santos [stream]

Listen to the Tri Angle producer's impossibly chillled rework of the indie-pop tune.


Words by: Charlie Jones

Fragile and gloomy, this Balam Acab remix of Silly Thoughts by Ra Ra Riot bassist Mathieu Santos takes the clap-along vibe out of the original and chops it up into something looser, longer and tainted with sadness.

Pittsburgh man Alec Koone expertly washes the track out with delay and reverb, stretching it into an only-just-recognisable version of itself, enveloping and evolving the sound of the original.
