The remix provides the glamour-tragic, cinematic beauty of parties a new veil of smoke and haze for the club environment. Elizabeth’s cathartic and bittersweet imagery of crying in the club paired with the vibrant dayglo sounds of Alice Ivy make for a perfect combo – the club as both celebratory and melancholy. Two sides of the emotionally spinning coin. Alice Ivy’s remix leaves a bruise where the original parties left a wound.
Of working with Elizabeth on the remix, Alice Ivy said “I still remember the first time I heard Elizabeth singing, it was a Sunday morning at Meredith Music Festival and she completely cured my hangover! I was stoked to be able to flip ‘’parties’’ into a little dance remix.”
The remix’s accompanying video was beautifully crafted by Elizabeth’s ex-wife Xanthe Dobbie – a Melbourne and Sydney based new media artist and curator. Their practice aims to capture the experience of post-internet contemporaneity and the visuals provide the perfect accompaniment to the glistening remix.
This remix of “Parties” brings a beautiful collaboration between two artists that embrace the intoxication of escapism and freedom found in the destruction of the hands we’re dealt.
For the first month of release, all proceeds from the download of “parties (Alice Ivy remix)” via Bandcamp will be split between The Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities and Wildlife Victoria.
