TWO LANES offer alluring inversion of Rüfüs du Sol’s ‘Innerbloom’
The third single released off of Rüfüs du Sol’s same-titled 2015 album, “Innerbloom,” then emerged as an ethereal production denotative of the Australian alternative dance group’s proximity to the sonically celestial. A veritable musical masterpiece embraced by remixers like What So Not and Lane 8, “Innerbloom” continues to exert a hold on listeners and artists alike well into 2018, as TWO LANES take on the track in what is only their fourth release to date.
The nascent newcomers pull off an evocative rework that lends a low timbre sonic sex appeal to vulnerable original. TWO LANES darkens the tone and slows the pace of the track’s vocal, inflecting the remix with sparkling synths that provide points of contrast. Tempered basslines and stirring percussive sweeps surface as constructions characteristic of a trap release, elements that would be unexpected in the context of an “Innerbloom” remix, and yet additions that constitute an alluring and alternative angle for TWO LANES’ rework.
