HEALTH "Die Slow (Nite Jewel Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
When we asked Nite Jewel (pictured above) and fellow LA synth-maestro Dâm-Funk to get together and collaborate on a song, their pairing made perfect sense. However, Nite Jewel joining the twinkling synth tones and poignant melodies of her own style with HEALTH's barren noise-rock soundscapes seems less likely to flourish, and yet here we are. A surprisingly upbeat, though perfectly somber, instrumental was written by Ramona Gonzalez as the backdrop for HEALTH's translucent vocal track. The two elements work together ideally, both in the quietly bubbling intro and the song's more buoyant second half. Which leads us to ask, Nite Health, anyone? (via FADER)
