PLS&TY? More like yes please! I loved Elephante’s original version of “Catching On,” but damn this new remix turns a sexy, Urban Outfitters ready song into a future bass banger. We see remixes of awesome songs everyday on Soundcloud, but sometimes I have to sit back and think about how crazy the idea of a remix is…isn’t it mind blowing how one musician can take another musician’s vision and turn it into something totally new? In a year where things aren’t looking too bright, I feel hopeful when I think about one person being inspired enough by another person to make their music something new and beautiful like this “Catching On” remix!
Remixes aren’t the only thing this song made me think about though. The line, “I’m a prisoner in my own head,” is something that I vibe with… always overthinking things, then thinking about them again, then thinking about them just a bit more more for good measure! It’s a flaw that I’ve always had and I worry that it’ll never go away, but the drop in this song feels like a giant dam cracking open and releasing all the stress of being stuck in my head. I know I’m probably filling in between the lines, but it makes me feel comforted like I’m wrapped up in a blanket of good vibes and in the end that’s what good music is all about right? I have to say I’m feeling a lot better after getting all that out, so thanks PLS&TY.
