Some of our favourite tracks that we’ve featured on Breaking More Waves in 2013 so far include the songs from London Grammar’s soulful debut EP, Indiana’s sexy Bound, AlunaGeorge’s groovy Attracting Flies, Violet’s Where The Wild Things Grow, Chvrches’ synthtastic Recover and New Zealand newcomer Lorde and her Love Club EP (from which we featured the majestic Royals).
Let’s turn our attention to another track from that EP. Bravado is the song that opens Lorde's 5 tracker and there’s a certain similarity in parts to the higher elements of the vocal delivery of Marina & The Diamonds. In fact the opening moments of the track sound like a musical-pop cousin to one of our favourites from Electra Heart – Fear and Loathing. You can hear the original by clicking here. However, this remix from FFFRRANNNO who is also from New Zealand (it’s just pronounced Frano – the producer’s real name) does all the things we want a remix to do, in so far as it takes the song to new places (a glitchy electronic sort of place, as if Purity Ring are in the building and grinding up and down hornily in the bedroom) and gets us all hot under the collar. Phew we’re going for a cold shower. Crazy.
