Although indie pop quintet Said the Whale is best known for penning ultra-catchy buoyant rock-pop numbers, they’ve been known to occasionally dip their toes into other genres. For their new Remixed EP, bassist Nathan Shaw (who also crafts beats as Ekali) took four tracks from last year’s hawaiii and manipulated them into carefully constructed, stunning electro R&B remixes. Even with drastically different arrangements, the strong songwriting shines. More than the standard remix follow-up.
