Earlier this past summer, the Brooklyn-based duo of Jonathan Rauberts and Kristen Sonntag aka Surrender The Spirit debuted new single “Control” ahead of the just released Premonition EP. The dark, soaring track came out just in time for wistful late night summer drives with textural elements reminiscent of acts like TV On The Radio or Poliça.
Speak Into My Good Eye is happy to host the exclusive premiere of a new remix of “Control” by NYC’s Blockhead.
According to the band, “‘Control’ represents the overall theme of why we created Surrender the Spirit. You can try to do all of kinds of things, but in the end your aims are best met by just letting go of everything outside of the creative process.”
With Blockhead’s reinterpretation, the building-to-crescendo synths instead undulate and pop with icy strains of keys carefully laid out along with Sonntag’s haunting vocal take. Stream “Control” (Blockhead Remix) below and keep up with more from Surrender The Spirit here.
