Ahead of their Amsterdam show together Bouts and Kobina have joined forces for a very different take on Bouts last single ‘Love’s Lost Landings Pt. 2’. Speaking about the electronic, more downbeat tempo version of the song Kobina creator Sean Arthur commented;
“With any remix I try to find the core of what makes the original stand out to me and then flip it. For me the original was filled with a real sense of resignation, but is buoyed up by this sense of catharsis. I wanted to zoom in on that resignation and amplify how claustrophobic and alone you can feel in in a non-reciprocal situation. I wanted it to be dark, and stuttering like you couldn’t get the words out.“
Bouts and Kobina play Amsterdam’s Cinetol venue along with Botanic on April 5th.
Bouts are also one of the first 30 acts confirmed to play Knockan Stockan Festival this July 19th-21st www.knockanstockan.ie
