Not too long ago, I reviewed the song “LNOE” by The High Wire. A remix of the song that was done by Ghost Loft has been released, so this is a review of the remix.
One of the defining characteristics of the original version of “LNOE” was the strings. In this remix version, the strings are basically gone; instead, the song has been recast into more of an electronic/synthpop sound.
Sometimes, it can be a bit of a gamble to drastically change the sound of a song when it’s remixed. This is a case where I can genuinely say that recasting the song with a different sound actually works and sounds very good. In fact, I’m willing to go so far as to say that it’s almost as good as the original version.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s the original version of “LNOE” that’s available at SoundCloud:
