Lil Silva recently released his solo Mable EP. It includes his remix of Little Dragon’s “Pretty Girls”, off their album Nabuma Rubberband, which was released in May 2014.
In a mxdwn review of the album, “Pretty Girls” was described as, “Sound[ing] like it would be playing at any red light district’s underground dance club due to its seductive synths paired with Nagano’s honey-sweet vocals. “Cat Rider” begins with woozy synths and a reverb-heavy snare. Nagano’s vocals sound like a beautiful whisper, like she’s telling the listener a secret, which she is. Her lyrics are a mix of poetry and pensive venting that make this album that much more intimate and dark.”
Stereogum describes Lil Silva’s take on the song as, “hops and twists [of the orginial] song into a slinky twilight anthem and teases out a small electronic flourish from the original into a catchy-as-hell bass line.
