BANKS – Beggin For Thread (Bag Raiders Remix)
Though it’s certainly more easily digested and straightforward than many of her songs, BANKS‘ “Beggin for Thread” isn’t exactly a departure from the rest of her work. Infectious and playful as it may be, the track still exhibits many of the characteristics we’ve come to expect from her: it’s thought-provoking, somewhat reserved, and graceful. Only the most skilled, attentive artists can be expected to do such a powerful yet delicate tune justice, so it’s relieving to see that BANKS has entrusted Bag Raiders with remix duties. And unsurprisingly, the Australian duo have delivered a song that’s every bit as lovely as the original. Bag Raiders simplify the percussion; add dramatic, sweeping synths; and, most importantly, let BANKS’ voice shine. Ultimately, the remix is not only a wonderful song, but a perfect fit for the rest of BANKS’ catalogue.
“Beggin For Thread (Bag Raiders Remix)” is available as a free download via SoundCloud, and the original is available for purchase as a part of BANKS’ debut album, Goddess.
