Soft Metals "Eyes Closed (Copy Remix)"
Portland synth-pop duo Soft Metals is preparing to release an EP collecting remixes of tracks from the group's self-titled debut, which was released last summer on Captured Tracks. Here, remixing duties of album standout "Eyes Closed" have been handed over to fellow Portland producer Copy, who trims the original's cold-wave leanings and magnifies its house vibe. Copy's handiwork doesn't take the edge off, though, as the raw synthiness of the source material remains prominent in this new version. The Remixes (artwork above), which features efforts from Xander Harris, VALIS, and more, drops on May 15 via Sweating Tapes. In the meantime, you can stream the EP in its entirety, after the jump.
