Jockstrap and Taylor Skye return with new remix, "Good Girl"

Jockstrap and Taylor Skye have shared "Good Girl" as the latest track taken from their upcoming remix album I<3UQTINVU – a fully reworked version of the Mercury Prize shortlisted 2022 album I Love You Jennifer B.

The remix record is the brainchild of Taylor Skye, who was making multiple versions of the album’s original tracklisting to stay inspired during the writing of I Love You Jennifer B. The guest features on the remix record range from Ersatz, who inspired Skye to make music many years ago to IAN STARR who he only connected with online a few months ago.

The "Good Girl" release is accompanied by a video directed by Esme Creed-Miles, who also stars in the video.

Creed-Miles explains: “Taking Georgia’s initial concept of a girl dancing and using her lyrics for inspiration, I wanted to make something sexy, pining and internal, and to create a scene of privacy. It’s a glimpse into the urgency of dancing alone, the onanistic and liberated self that comes alive without an audience, or perhaps even acting out a version of the self which you want to share with someone special. I run out of superlatives when it comes to Jockstrap and it was an honour to make something for them.”

"Good Girl" was inspired by some of Skye’s favourite dance acts growing up such as Disclosure and James Blake.

Skye explains more about I<3UQTINVU, saying, “Some of these remixes are almost three years old and some are only six months old. I made most of them really quickly, in a day or so. It keeps me sane to do this whilst mixing the album. I don't really remember making them. It's like eating too much and then throwing up and this is what comes out. It's a weird feeling but also really fun. I felt very happy making some of this music and live it will be quite the show.”

I<3UQTINVU is set for release on 3 November via Rough Trade Records, and will be available on standard black vinyl and on limited edition red vinyl, complete with a rose-perfumed inner sleeve. Pre-orders are available now.
