LISTEN: Sarah Jaffe’s Sultry “Lover Girl” Goes Dance Floor Redux Remixed by Mystery Skulls
Jaffe: "I thought he would kill a remix for 'Lover Girl.' Of course, he did just that."
Sarah Jaffe is a musician who always seems filled with infinite potential—her early songs were intelligent, more folk-driven ballads akin to Bright Eyes and Laura Marling, while tracks from her latest album, Don’t Disconnect, demonstrate a thoughtful, well-crafted aim toward pop tops. The new, impressive remix of Jaffe’s sultry song “Lover Girl” by electro outfit Mystery Skulls (the project of Luis Dubuc) is the latest boost to that ever-amplifying profile.
“I have been a fan of [Sarah’s] music for years and so when she asked me to remix the song, I said ‘yes’ instantly and got to work. I only kept the a capella from the original song and composed the rest. I think this mix turned out so great and it’s really nice to get to collaborate with other Dallas artists,” notes Dubuc.
Check out our premiere of the track below.
Jaffe’s Don’t Disconnect is out now on Kirtland Record; Mystery Skulls’ debut Forever was just released on Warner Brothers.
