Night Works "I Tried So Hard (Gold Panda Remix)"
- Words: Taylor Fife
Gabriel Stebbings, formerly of British pop outfit Metronomy, won't unveil his debut as Night Works until later this year, but is already garnering attention around the blogosphere with woozy synth-pop teaser "I Tried So Hard." Despite not yet having an official release, a couple of producers have already tried their hand at remixing the song, and here, we have the version crafted by UK beatmaker Gold Panda (pictured above). The remix is a shimmering bit of beatwork that roughens things up with an aggressive synthline, a more driving drum pattern, and lots of textural pop and hiss. The music video for Stebbings' original version can be found after the jump.
