Do you want to explore a different style? Just drop a remix! On our latest check-in on the indie space, we are checking out a brand new remix of “Feels Like” from Anna Shoemaker. Born in Philadelphia and now based out of New York, Anna found her initial break into the music world via her own Soundcloud mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Chance the Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses”. Now with almost 900k streams online, the track caught the eye of fashion mogul Steve Madden, who recruited Anna to his label. While Anna received a dose of praise when she dropped her debut EP East Side in 2018, it wasn’t until her sophomore drop Everything is Embarrassing released earlier this year that she popped on our radar. Spending the rest of 2020 casually dropping various singles, we can’t wait to see where 2021 takes Anna’s career.
While we have been paying attention to Shoemaker’s career for a hot minute, we didn’t expect a bomb remix to come out of her camp. Even though we’ve grown accustomed to the indie/dream pop sound that Anna has crafted so far, we are always open to artist exploration. Crafted by 1 Trait Danger, the satirical side project of Andrew Katz of Car Seat Headrest, this remix takes Anna’s dreamlike pop vibes and injects it into a world of synths and electronics. The original “Feels Like” track may have been a raw and powerful slow burn, but 1 Trait Danger’s version throws it directly into our dance rotation. Through the inclusion of light electronic beats make it perfect for a post-COVID “crying in the club” night club banger.
