“This Thing Of Ours”, the title song from Rainy Milo’s recent LP, was one of favorites when we streamed it back in April. The song from the soulful London artist gets an update here from Kentucky’s Ellie Herring in a remix that’s almost unrecognizable, save for a few vocal cuts, and a heightened tempo adding a sense of propulsion to the original’s woozy romance.
“I really wanted to fit a quicker groove with the slinky mood of the original,” Herring says of her remix. “Rainy’s voice more than anything stands on its own, so I had no intention of altering or pitching it; just lessened the full narrative and tried to hold to the bit of uncertainty in the original story.”
“I’ve always enjoyed hearing my songs reimagined by other creatives and what makes this remix especially cool to me is that it’s the first time another female has made a remix of one of my songs,” Milo adds. “I’m all about girl power and am so happy that me and Ellie’s vibes came together so well for this remix. I can totally imagine models strutting down a runway to this remix, Ellie’s sound has that slick modern fashion vibe to me.”
