THESE ARE POWERS gets remixed, ready a month of New York shows

As the release of THESE ARE POWERS’ debut for Dead Oceans All Aboard Future draws near, the good people at The Tripwire have dropped a remix of album cut “Easy Answers” by minimalist trance master Butchy Fuego. Get it right HERE.

Quoth Tripwire regarding Butchy’s edit: “At the forefront — as is the case in their “normal” recordings — are Barie’s vocals. Her sharp staccato annunciation and Ponytail-esque delivery is the attention grabber, but here it’s backed by a softer, almost muted accompaniment of remixed bass and percussion. Cut up with synths, hand claps and overdubs, it’s a more inviting tone for the usually much noisier music collective. Or to appropriate their words again, they are hymns piggybacking on noise collages, club beats and ragas.”

Meanwhile, These Are Powers has lined up a slew of New York shows over the next month, playing some of the city’s coolest venues and art spaces. Check the dates below:
