DEHD – ” Desire ” Flower of Devotion Remixed

Posted: August 25, 2021 in MUSIC

Chicago trio Dehd have shared a Lala Lala remix of their song “Desire,” originally featured on their sophomore album “Flower Of Devotion”. It is the latest offering from their forthcoming remix album, Flower of Devotion Remixed, which will be out on September 17th via Fire Talk. Listen to the Lala Lala remix of “Desire,”.

Vocalist and guitarist Jason Balla speaks about the collaboration with Lala Lala (aka Lillie West), stating in a press release: “Lillie from Lala Lala really cut this one down to just the vocals and built it back from there. The first time I heard it I was amazed at the intensity of the vocals, it was like hearing the song for the first time. I think sometimes there’s this impulse in music making that more equals intensity, but I’d say this remix is an argument against that kind of logic.”

West adds: “Dehd are some of my best friends and one of my favourite bands, and it was an honour to remix their song ‘Desire.’ Emily [Kempf]’s isolated vocals made me cry. I hope you dance.”

Upon the announcement of Flower of Devotion Remixed last month, the band shared a remix of “Flying” by Physical Medium. The original Flower of Devotion was released last year on Fire Talk, and featured the singles “Flood” “Month” and “Ha Ha”. The band will be supporting Julien Baker on her forthcoming tour in October and November 2021.

‘Flower of Devotion’ was one of the most critically-heralded releases of the year, named Best New Music by Pitchfork who called the record “an effortless, elegantly rumpled strain of indie rock” and the album received further accolades from the FADER, Vice Noisey, Under the Radar, Variety and more. ‘Flower of Devotion Remixed’ sees Dehd surrounded by a myriad of close collaborators (Lala Lala, Protomartyr, Freak Heat Waves, and more) and points a shining spotlight on the Chicago music scene the band still calls home, staying true to the trio’s earnest melodies while creating an amorphous blend of experimentations in mutated indie pop that feels like a personal mixtape for the friends that know them best.
