Girls Names’ The New Life is one of the year’s best and it found the band dispensing the jangle side of their oeuvre and heading down more of a deeper post-punk path, with exceptional results.
Here, Factory Floor’s Gabe Gurnsey takes the album’s ninth track ‘Projektions’, rips it up and makes something with a more motorik precision. Gone are the swirling guitar lines and almost everything else. Gurnsey seemingly takes the percussion detail and expands it into a Factory Floor-style synth-pulse minimal charger. The track is less a remix, more of a starting point but the output works nicely nonetheless.
The remix comes from The Next Life EP, a collection of remixes coming out on Tough Love (Europe)/Slumberland (US) out later in the year. Meanwhile, Girls Names play Castlepalooza in two weeks.
The EP will also feature remixes from David Holmes, Locust, The Soft Walls and Optimo.
