Girls Names – ‘Projektions’ (Factory Floor Gabe Gurnsey Remix)


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.
