Published Sep 17, 2014Keeping herself busy before heading out on the next leg of tour dates in support of Are We There, Sharon Van Etten has shared a re-imagining of the set's "Our Love" by the Juan MacLean.
The remix pushes the electronic feel of the original beyond its drum machine-indebted rhythm, busting out a busy blip of arpeggio keyboard to bustle beneath Van Etten's rumination on a relationship comparable to a half-mast flag. It makes for a different kind of listen than the slippery, reverb-soaked six-strings that mark the original, but it's compelling nonetheless.
