With its latest album Just Look At That Sky (Felte) already topping many critics’ lists this year, Chicago’s Ganser returns with its latest effort, the single, “Bags For Life,” a remix by GLOK (The dance moniker of Ride’s Andy Bell). The track is off the band’s full remix EP, Look At The Sun (Felte), which features a lineup of artists that are still yet to be announced. The EP has a tentative release date of March 2, 2021. GLOK’s remix takes a more expansive approach to the song, exploring electronics in lieu of the driving rhythms and over-the-top guitars and horns.
Of the single, Andy Bell offers, “Ganser are a great band and I was buzzing to be asked to give “Bags for life” a GLOK remix. There was so much within the multi-track that I could work with and I’m very happy with the result.”
Ganser’s Alicia Gaines shares, “‘Bags For Life’ is a song about the end of the world as perceived on the internet, written in 2019. I didn’t imagine the song to be such a time capsule already, its tone has changed from parody to something much more dear in 2020. These online collaborations from quarantine have been a private joy for us, and we are overwhelmed by Andy Bell’s work on this remix.”
