Tomorrow, iconic Los Angeles indie-pop starlet Caroline Kingsbury announces a brand new remix EP, Remixes From Heaven (out 6/10), composed of newly remixed versions of hit tracks off her debut album, Heaven’s Just A Flight (released last year via Fortune Tellers Records). To kick everything off, she has shared the first remix helmed by Nashville synth-pop influenced indie rockers Arlie, “Massive Escape (Arlie Remix)” which Glide is premiering. Propelled forward with a twinkling jangle-pop melody and enchanting synths, the new version of the track is a dream, straight out of the days of disco.
Speaking on the newly revamped track, Caroline wrote:
“Every single word I sing in this song happened the night I saw a plane crash into someone’s house on the television screen behind a shitty bar. I threw back a shot and a beer and wrote the lyrics out in a note on my phone as I watched the wreckage settle. I had just ended a long term relationship and felt the weight of that decision that night. The original version of ‘Massive Escape’ came out a full year ago on my debut album….and my original intention with production was to set the scene of the drama I was experiencing the night I wrote it…I chose a driving, syncopated beat to represent the emotional highs and lows and the heights those feelings took me that drunken night. The instrumentals of this version of ‘Massive Escape’ is a breath of fresh air after the wreckage of that heartbreak. I feel it represents the healing after tragedy…That’s exactly where I am in life, healing after losing my brother to cancer and having a strained relationship with family members after I began dating my girlfriend.”
Remixes from Heaven also includes a dance remix from DJ Josh Lumsden and a remix by Fortune Tellers’ Peter Matthew Bauer, as well as two new alternate versions by Caroline herself. Currently on tour with Post Animal down the west coast, Caroline will be throwing a residency at Berlin in NYC all of June.
