Tahiti 80’s Xavier Boyer has remixed “Love Is Like A Spinning Wheel” by Montreal-based psychedelic rock outfit, Elephant Stone, and the result is a new wave-y tune with a music video made up of vintage movie clips from the 70’s.
Following the release of “Ship of Fools,” Elephant Stone is set to release a remix album called “Remix of Fools” on September 23, featuring members of TOY, Caribou, Young Galaxy, and more. This track remixed by Xavier Boyer plays on the trippy atmospherics and hooks of the song, making it even more satisfying.
The video, made by James Oswald by Alta Real pictures, is a visual trip in itself, with a montage of vintage clips from movies that are presumably from the 70’s.
Vocalist Rishi Dir is obviously excited about the remix, recalling how the collaboration came about.
“He caught one of our gigs in France and reached out via twitter. I was a fan of Tahiti 80s first record, so this was a pretty big thrill. It wasn’t until this summer that we met in Paris. As is my way, I asked if he would be interested in doing a remix. For the record, Xavier is immensely talented and a wonderful soul. He’s a mammoth songwriter/arranger. This is no more evident than with what he did to this song. He made this song into everything I always wanted it to be,” said Dir, to a press release sent to The Violet Wave
