Maya Jane Coles continues genre experimentations in her new track, Eli & Fur – Come Back Around (Maya Jane Coles Remix). Her remix is a darker and lonelier interpretation of the original song released earlier in 2021. This new Maya Jane Coles music continues exploring the nocturnal topics from her latest album Night Creature. However, Eli & Fur – Come Back Around (Maya Jane Coles Remix) has an industrial twist to it that makes it more driving and spellbinding.
Maya’s version of the song is over one minute longer than the original. And this length is entirely justified since it allows the artist to introduce more progressive elements to the track. These range from meowlike synths that sound like a crawling manticore to arpeggiated leads that remind of the 80s Detroit Techno.
The ethereal vocals and airy pads are carried by a locomotive of dense and precise drums with a futuristic feel. Similarly, the vocoder used on the vocals adds to the mysterious atmosphere of the remix. The result is new Maya Jane Coles music that would be a perfect soundtrack to a dystopian cyberpunk movie set in a neon-covered city.
Moreover, it’s highlighted even in the music video of the Mayas Jane Coles’ remix. In it, the footage from the hit song by the London House music duo is edited to feature a colder and dimmed color palette to convey the melancholic atmosphere of the track. “Alone at night I sit and wonder is it as good as it could ever be?” whispers the robotic voice in the track. And the answer is “yes”: the gloomier and colder version of the song is the perfect winter soundtrack for lonely nights in a world affected by lockdowns and isolation.
