RAC reimagines Tycho’s silky ‘Pink & Blue’ with Saint Sinner
When Tycho‘s “Pink & Blue” was first released, fans welcomed the contemplative tune and its silky vocals courtesy of Saint Sinner. The San Francisco-based musician had in the past focused mainly on instrumentals and composition, and the majority of his work didn’t include vocals.
This took a turn with Tycho’s fifth studio album, Weather, which debuted in July. He tapped songstress Saint Sinner for five of its eight tracks, instating a new chapter in his discography. This seems to have resonated with esteemed producer RAC, who lends his creative touch to a new official remix of “Pink & Blue.”
RAC’s interpretation of “Pink & Blue” sees the song take on a more pop-oriented, lighthearted atmosphere. It’s a brighter, breezier take on the tune, giving listeners the chance to absorb all three artists’ creativity in a new way. See what RAC said about this opportunity below.
I've been following Scott's work as a designer since 07/08, so when I first heard his music I was immediately drawn to it. I see a lot of parallels in the sonic choices and his own aesthetic.— RAC (@RAC) August 20, 2019
One of my favorite things to do is see artists progress over time and develop their techniques. I think this new Tycho album with vocals is such a nice step in that trajectory. I was thrilled to be a part of this remix package because this song immediately jumped out at me.— RAC (@RAC) August 20, 2019
My natural inclination is to make it a bit poppier whereas the original is more introspective. The chord progression from the verse felt really good to me so I decided to loop it and build the track around that. Enjoy!— RAC (@RAC) August 20, 2019
