Wall – “Shoestring (Woman’s Hour Remix)”

WALL is the stage name of London singer Lyla Foy who first emerged onto the scene with her gorgeous cover of Karen Dalton’s “Something On Your Mind.” Following that, she released her EP Shoestring earlier this year, and included on the record is the standout track of the same name. Now we get a remix of the song, thanks to fellow London musicians Woman’s Hour. The band takes the delicate pop song, slows it down and transforms it into a subtly winding, synth-heavy electro-indie production. The remix still keeps that essential intimacy that WALL’s original song possessed, but reworks it in an entirely new and unique way. Drift away with it below.
