Caroline Polachek remixes A. G. Cook's "Oh Yeah"

16 April 2021, 15:06 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

A. G. Cook has shared a Caroline Polachek remix of his Apple album track "Oh Yeah".

The PC Music founder released his Apple album in September last year, and has today (16 April) presented a new remix of the opening song "Oh Yeah" by frequent collaborator Caroline Polachek.

Polachek's rework of the track sees her add her own vocals, harmonies and bagpipes.

She says of the remix, "Sometimes when autotuned vocals make those flickery clusters of missed-notes, it reminds me of bagpipe ornamentation. And that place where the brutally casual and the technically virtuosic meet...well it feels very A. G. Cook. So I transcribed his hard-tuned vocal solo into this massive bagpipe line to open and close the remix.The original "Oh Yeah" makes a brilliant centerpiece of probably the most banal lyric ever, so for the remix I stretched and repeated it to the point that it devolves into this relentlessly sincere affirmation, oh yeah."

Polachek's remix of "Oh Yeah" marks the first collaboration between the two since Cook shared a festive remix of her Pang album track "So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings" in December last year.

Caroline Polachek's remix of A. G. Cook's "Oh Yeah" track is out now.
