Last year was a big year for the Portland, OR-based Liz Anjos, best known in indie electronica circles under the moniker of Pink Feathers. She spent a the bulk of 2014 touring with blogosphere darling and frequent collaborator RAC, released her debut EP, Invisible Lines – and she ended the year with announcing that her and RAC will be sharing the stage at this year’s Coachella Festival. (Interestingly, many of my colleagues have talked about how Coachella may be the festival of the year, based on the lineup. We shall see.) 

Building up on the buzz created by the release of Invisible Lines, Anjos enlisted the up-and-coming DC-based producer Eau Claire to remix EP single “The Feeling’s Gone” which features the Austin, TX-based band SPEAK. The remix is the first single off an Invisible Lines remix package which will feature remixes and reworkings from the likes of St. Lucia, Ghost Beach and Holychild. I’ve been a big fan of St. Lucia for some time now and I dug Ghost Beach’s last album, so I have to admit that I’m looking forward to those remixes…

The original version of the song is a breezy bit of radio-friendly pop comprised of cascading synths, swirling electronics, propulsive percussion and earnest pop-based male and female duet vocals paired with slickly modern production values. And in some way it reminds me quite a bit of a track off Little Boots‘ Nocturnes. However, the Eau Claire remix retains the cascading synths and swirling electronics but adds an increasingly propulsive and up-tempo percussion, which pushes the song towards the direction of a decided club-friendly house track.
