Los Angeles-based quartet Battle Tapes, known for their synth-pop and electronic-rock influences, deliver a retro-inspired remix of Sunset Neon’s “Never Dance Again,” available for streaming now on Spotify and Apple Music. The remix features smooth synths, relaxed beats, and a glamorous ’80s-rock guitar solo.
The original track was featured on Sunset Neon’s debut album Starlight, which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Dance Chart in December.
“We tend to approach remixes as though we are the original producers of the song,” explains Battle Tapes. “What was cool about ‘Never Dance Again’ was once we peeled back the production and focused on the vocal and lyrics we found a surprising sadness in the verses juxtaposed by a chorus that had a feeling of a somewhat joyful retribution. We wanted to bring some of those emotions to the forefront of the remix that might have been hidden in the original while still adhering to Sunset Neon’s retrowave/80s sensibilities.”
