To this day, Tegan & Sara’s “Walking With A Ghost” remains one of my favorite songs ever. A decade later and the Canadian duo are still releasing some awesome indie rock/pop music, with their latest album Heartthrob being released last year.
On September 30th, the twins will release their I Was A Fool: Remixed EP; which will feature different renditions of their Heartthrob single “I Was A Fool.” The Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish was one of the artists enlisted, and his trap-infused version can be heard below.
I remember hearing a Mylo remix of “Walking With A Ghost” back in 2006 and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. As an indie rock musician it was mind blowing to hear our music remixed. I had never thought our music would be re-imagined that way and in that genre.
Nowadays it’s much more common / almost expected that a band will release remixes. But, I have to admit, the feeling of awe when I hear our music on a dance floor hasn’t waned over the years.
This collection of remixes is my favourite batch yet. “I Was A Fool” was much more difficult to envision as an electronic song for me. I worried about how it would alter the mood and emotional integrity of the song. As the remixes came in, I realized that in many ways it allowed the song to breath more and the emotional intensity in the song was even more glaring. Plus, I think this batch of artists just made some super cool tracks! I could not be happier with how they all turned out!
