Oh Sailor (Strange Talk Remix) x Mr Little Jeans
I have a love/hate relationship with Mr Little Jeans. Back in 2011, she gave me one of my favorite covers I’ve ever heard; a chillwave version of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs”.
She gains nearly instant notoriety and fame among the indie pop community and blogosphere. Fast forward to 2012 and all she gives to us is “Runaway” a decent single that had me hooked for a day or two, but lacking when compared to her amazing cover.
2013 comes along and my heart skips a beat as I eye a new track “Oh Sailor” by Mr Little Jeans. Hit the play button grinning like a little boy on X-mas morning, but my smile starts to fade fast. I pause the song after a minute or two, sigh loudly, and decide to finish it for the sake of hearing it out. It just felt so mediocre and boring.
The same can’t be said for this Strange Talk remix. Strange Talk gave Mr Little Jeans what she was missing in her previous releases, but I know she has in her because we’ve all seen it with “The Suburbs”.
