Korallreven "Loved-Up (LOL Boys Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Production duo LOL Boys (pictured above) snagged the pieces of fellow two-piece Korallreven's hazy Balearic pop number "Loved-Up" and reformatted them into something a bit less subtle, rhythmically speaking, though as equally filled with delicate atmosphere. The bouncing beat and swirling melodies are plenty enjoyable, but it's the way LOL Boys toy with the dainty vocal track that really catches our attention. At first, the thin falsetto is chopped up and warped as a more percussive melody, which is matched equally by the beautifully sung lyrics, "I'm so loved up/I'm so scared," themselves soaked in dreamy reverb.
