School of Seven Bells "Heart Is Strange (Active Child Remix)"
It's an ideal pairing: the dreamy electronics of LA's Active Child with the airy shoegaze of NY's School of Seven Bells (pictured above). The two outfits will be sharing wax space on a split 7" coming out on October 26 courtesy of Lefse, with each artist contributing a remix of the other's music. Active Child nabs a track off of School of Seven Bells' latest album, Disconnect From Desire, and strips the song of its synth-propelled driving force, instead giving it a bright swirl of harp and vocal arrangements centered around a slow drum-machine beat. That said, synths still play a large part in this remix of "Heart Is Strange," and after the mid-point of the song, a warm bass timbre slowly rises into the forefront of the production, giving the rest of the floating sonics something sturdy to hold on to.
