Sisters is the Seattle duo of Emily Westman and Andrew Vait. The two have only been making music under Sisters for about a year, but already caught attention for their delightful single “Back 2 U,” taken from their debut EP, Diamonds of Gold. Based on that alone, they found themselves booked at festivals such as Capitol Hill Block Party and Fisherman’s Village Music Festival.
The original version of “Back 2 U” had an early Passion Pit swagger to it. It recently got remixed by East Coast producer Figgy, who slows down the pace a bit, giving the song a sexier, more romantic outlook, while also spicing it up with delicate synths and percussion that keeps the dance influence perfectly intact. It’s does what any good remix should, keeping the main identity of the song while also adding something distinctive.
Today we have the privilege of premiering Figgy’s remix of “Back 2 U” exclusively with you guys. I hope you enjoy it. You can find it streaming below, along with the original version.
