This incredible remix from oOoOO has just surfaced. He (Christopher Dexter Greenspan) has taken Marina & the diamonds’ ‘Obsessions’ and transformed it into a dark, synth-laden, emotionally wraught track. The original was emotional enough, with Marina’s dramatic vocals accompanied by crisp and crescendoing piano chords. Here however, the vocals are echoed and drawn out, adding a mysterious and laboured effect to the song. The original featured a woman questioning a relationship; here she tortures herself over where it went wrong, as both vocals and instrumentation echo and reverberate. Get the track for free here at Neon Gold.
I already liked oOoOO, but now I quite adore him.

Witch-house. Hmm. A peculiar term that seems to be being used with quite a regularity to describe bands such as Salem and oOoOO. The fact that I dislike Salem but love oOoOO makes me want to disregard this term, but I actually see it as quite fitting. The spooky, ethereal nature of oOoOO’s tracks conjure up images of haunted places and smoke filled scenery, so I suppose a reference to witches is kinda somehow relevant? Yeah?
Whatever the hell you want to define this as, I like it. oOoOO’s self-titled EP is now available for streaming here on XLR8R.
