Following their emotive single debut “Want It To End,” released on Dim Mak Records in January, and their official remix of Apashe’s “Distance”, Pushing Daizies are back with another release that will put you right in your feelings. Their remix of Tate McRae‘s hit “you broke me first” sees the mysterious duo exploring their darker side with a more minimalistic and haunting sound; opening with soulful vocals from the original, the track quickly incorporates a goosebump-inducing drop featuring glimmering synths layered over a rhythmic and hard-hitting bassline. “You broke me first” tells the tale of an ill-fated romance from the female perspective, finally turning the tables on the last verse with distorted male vocals. The new remix provides a glimpse into the dynamic talent that is hiding behind the facade of Pushing Daizies, and with their 3rd release in less than 2 months, it appears we can expect much more to come!
Pushing Daizies is the pseudonym of two US-based dance music producers joining forces. The enigmatic duo makes groovy, bass-heavy, electronic dance music that creates an emotional roller coaster, pulling at the heartstrings of its listeners. The project, which initially began as multiple collaborations between the two artists, transpired as their synergy saw no end in sight. “Once we found our rhythm, we knew we had something special. It was bigger than just a few singles. I guess you could say that the project was an accident in the greatest way possible,” said one of the producers. The term “pushing daisies” refers to the flowers that grow over a burial plot when someone dies, which is symbolic of the cycles of life and death, light and dark. Said differently, when someone dies, life is created.
