Touch (Delorean Remix)
Since unveiling their stellar fourth LP Apar last fall, the always-inventive Basque dance pop quartet Delorean have gone on to produce a string of choice remixes for female-fronted indie acts — Empress Of, Haim and, now, the UK-based newcomer Shura. Shura’s debut track, “Touch,” is languid, sepia-toned heartbreak pop, fusing funk, 80s and R&B elements over a warm, pulsing synthetic bedrock in the style of Blood Orange and Charli XCX. Delorean’s remix preserves the sonic delicacy and emotional immediacy of the original while upping the tempo slightly and incorporating some haunting, oceanic delay effects that subtly alter the track’s mood.
