SARAH BLASKO + PVT.
When you think of Sarah Blasko, you’d usually think delicate melodies, instrumentation, and this very personalised intensity.
You might not think percussion heavy, thumping, industrial. That’s what happens when you get PVT to remix a track though.
The track is ‘I Awake’, the title track from Blasko’s album of last year. I didn’t mind the original (I’ve spoken about my feelings of Blasko before), but this remix, amps it up. It makes what is quite a personalised song (hell, I think Blasko is the only local singer-songwriter that manages to make everything feel extremely personal), into something bigger than the individual. The original’s yearning to do better is amplified, almost as if to suggest that this is now a responsibility for the whole of society.
The remix is going to appear on a new EP from Sarah Blasko, the Fool EP, which’ll be out next Friday (November 15).
