LISTEN: Elaine Malone – ‘You’ (1000 Beasts Remix)

A captivating, blissfully lo-fi new offering from two of Cork’s freshest talents, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Elaine Malone and electronic artist & producer 1000 Beasts have shared ‘You’, a re-working of Malone’s debut single.

Led by Malone’s original beguiling vocals and lullaby-esque lyrics, 1000 Beasts has tentatively transformed the track with his distinctive percussion and reharmonizing of each verse, and the result is a magnetic soundscape that acts as an aural tonic for testing times.

“I first discovered ‘You’ way back in 2018, when Elaine first released it ahead of her debut EP Land,” 1000 Beasts explains. “It always struck a chord with me so I reached out to Elaine to see if I could get my hands on the stems and experiment with the track. Thankfully she agreed & then Covid came along and finally gave me the time and the opportunity to sit down and give the piece the attention it deserves – it’s probably one of my favourite remixes to date.”
