Jack Garratt | I Couldn't Want You Anyway (Son Lux Remix)

Remember when E4's Skins was actually good (and realistic)? Nope, me neither. It would seem the out of hand parties and reckless drug taking made the so-called gritty drama series about as far-fetched as me winning the lotto. Now before I get too sidetracked, the show did have a kick-ass soundtrack and was to be my pathway in to discovering Son Lux. His unique take on songwriting being as engaging today as it was when first hearing 2008's 'At War With Walls And Mazes' - here he returns to remix Jack Garrat's 'I Couldn't Want You Anyway' to gorgeous effect. Retaining the crisp falsetto vocals seems to be paramount yet opening up the track to ambiguous depths offers stunning results. It's still ever so Jack Garratt but with a distinct Son Lux touch through experimental percussion and glitchy backing vox an already impressive release is taken to even higher ground. Take a listen above for yourselves. The original can be streamed below.
