West London producer John Foyle (Gorillaz, KA Twigs, Sampha), strips the track back to basics with this remix, gradually building percussive textures, alongside melodic electronic beats. The mix delivers just enough base bite to drive RINNGS signature silky vocals forward with a renewed brooding energy.
Speaking about the remix John Foyle said “I wanted to retain the space and minimalism of the original track, whilst incorporating a number of new vocal chops into hooks, to build the energy. It felt important to keep the remix in line with the band’s original sound, so I decided to bring in a darker tone for the track by creating something rhythmically interesting using a lot of natural percussive sounds.”
Speaking about ‘Confession’ Karl and Nai said “For this tune we wanted to capture the nervous excitement of telling someone how you feel about them for the first time. That moment of intense connection. The intention of the arrangement is to represent the different sensations of confessing your obsession – the way time seems to slow down, the hyper-awareness of all your senses, the intense focus, the feelings of different chemicals rushing through your body, the light-headedness. And we wanted to do a tune you could slow-dance to of course…”
RINNGS, have become renowned for carving out their own particular brand of electronic music, delivered solely via a unique combination of silky vocals and percussion – No other instruments are used.
The original track was written, recorded and produced by the band in their London studio and follows their debut EP headline track, ‘Times Like These’ which was recently supported by Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1’s Chillest Show.
RINNGS debut single Cutting The Cloth was released in 2017. Supported by Spotify’s New Music Friday WW and Apple Music’s New Fire.
