RELEASE “AWAY FOR THE WEEKEND” REMIX
“It’s always a curious exercise to hear a song that is near perfection be remixed. The experiment usually ends in a product that falls short. Today, though, is not one of those days.” – THE REVUE
FOLLOWS THE SUCCESS OF TAMMY’S THIS LP
(Brooklyn, New York) – Today, TAMMY release the Ester remix of their buzzworthy single, “Away For The Weekend” which The Revue has hailed as “hypnotic and even breathtaking”. The Brooklyn-based duo recently shared their LP titled This, which includes the critically acclaimed single “Away For The Weekend”, as well as “Hated It (With You)” and “Doing Something Right”. On the record, TAMMY channels an intoxicatingly vintage vibe that prompted notable site Consequence of Sound to declare it as “music for the bedroom”. This is an unforgettable collective of spell-bounding harmonies and tongue-in-cheek lyrics about the spoils of love.
Of the remix, Ester says “I’ve loved ‘Away For The Weekend’ since I first heard TAMMY play it live as a duo at Pete’s Candy Store. It has stuck with me since, re-entering my consciousness each time I would see them play it, and when I got the opportunity to remix one of their songs, I jumped at it. Such a beautiful, haunting melody and lyrics.”
Of the original track, TAMMY proclaims, “This track is one of the first songs we ever played together. When we would play it at shows, we’d always say we were playing our future hit single. In the TAMMY repertoire, we break most of our songs down into the categories of love songs, hate songs, and songs about making out. This one, written before we conceived of those designations, doesn’t fit so neatly into any of them. The subject is in love but it’s a hopeless kind of love, and in the end, we don’t get the feeling that it’s come to fruition…”
