Giselle – Silk (Cosmic Kids Remix)
This song is rated: 2 Pills – intermediate musicologist level
Hi there, Dr. Whuzzerface here,
Thanks again for your love and support last week. Also, thanks for your extreme patience in waiting an entire week and a half between songs! Because you, young students (said in a karate master type voice), have mastered such patience, you shall be rewarded with not one, but two songs. And not just any two songs, but two remixes that will be more than sufficient to satisfy your boundless thirst for musical knowledge. I will post each song separately as they deserve individual mention and not to be overshadowed by each other (listen to “Climax” here).
First up we have a chillwave offering for you folks who love 80’s synth-heavy songs dialed back to a more relaxed pace. Giselle is only getting started in the music scene Down Under, but because she offers clear and sweet soprano vocals, her songs are quickly becoming favorites to remix, as is the case with here. Quite honestly on a musican scale, I’m not impressed with what she has to offer other than the timbre of her voice, however, she is only 20 so hopefully she can learn a lot in the next few years. That being said, Cosmic Kids have fabricated a mix of metaphorically musical uppers and downers which weave “Silk” into a trance-like tune.
To start it off, you’re introduced to bongo drums and island-esque guitar hits every 8 beats. A “rev” that’s borrowed directly from Mariah Careys 90’s hit “I’ve Been Thinking About You” slams you next accompanied by gentle claps that lure you in. After the first verse which ends with “You held me tighter when I pushed you away. You turned my sorrow into silk, you turned my sorrow…” the keyboard starts to crescendo and fry, turning into wave after wave of mandatory head bobbing delight. Get carried away in the current that is “Silk”. Best part about this song? It’s free (Cosmic Kids went over their allowed ‘shares’ on soundcloud so they posted it here)!!!
