ShadowBox "AM (Bodhi Remix)"
All of the artists involved in the creation of this tune are relatively new to electronic music production. Bonnie Baxter (a.k.a. ShadowBox, pictured above) fronted a rock-oriented outfit before trading in her guitar for a drum machine, while Luke Welsby and Olly Howells (a.k.a. Bodhi) played in bands in their native Cardiff before diving into electronic production just six months ago. On the pair's remix of the budding solo artist, Bodhi brighten up the dark and dystopian synth-pop of the original with major chords and sunny summer vibes. Bodhi also pitches down the vocals and makes them rather prominent in the mix, turning a tune that was once rough and gothy into a drifting bit of vocal-based disco-pop. The original version of "AM" will appear on ShadowBox's forthcoming Haunted by Colors EP, which will drop on July 24 through Pictures Music. And for interested parties in and around NYC, you can catch a live performance from ShadowBox tonight, free of charge, at Tammany Hall in the Lower East Side.
