Elaine Mai Remixes Pillow Queens’ ‘Gay Girls’

Elaine Mai is back with a low-fi remix of the Choice Prize nominated track ‘Gay Girls’ by Pillow Queens. Described by Clash Magazine as “a vital Irish artist“, she is fast becoming one of the most sought-after remixers in the country.

Elaine says: “I’m a huge fan of Pillow Queens, and loved their ‘Gay Girls’ track from the first time I heard it. I knew I wanted to do something different with it and when I listened to the stems I was immediately drawn to the vocals. There are all these gorgeous nuggets that are super catchy, but also show real vulnerability. The line, ‘roots for you’ and the main vocal cut I highlighted in the chorus are absolute gems, so they formed a large part of the remix. I’ve wanted to work with the guys for a while, this was a brilliant project to work on and I’m delighted with how the track turned out.

Pillow Queens say: “We were sitting in an old man pub in Derry when the ‘Gay Girls’ remix came through, so we took it in turns to pass around headphones and have our minds respectively blown. We were excited Elaine wanted to remix one of our songs and couldn’t have envisioned how well it would turn out. ‘Gay Girls’ is a song really close to our hearts so it’s really nice to have Elaine breathe new life into it in a completely unique way.

Remixes aren’t the only thing on Elaine Mai’s mind. She has collaborated on a new track with Soulé and Sorcha Richardson which is due for release this summer, and has been working on new music, with her first single ‘Heartbeat’ coming this autumn.
