RVG present an electro-funk remix of the lead single from their critically acclaimed album ‘Brain Worms’ – ‘Nothing Really Changes’ by UK post-punk duo Sleaford Mods (Rough Trade). The release will feature on the band’s forthcoming remix EP ‘Nothing Really Changes (Remixes)’ – out Friday 20 October.
Sleaford Mods have become one of the UK’s cult bands of the moment: unapologetic champions of working-class anger in a post-Brexit, austerity-era landscape. They have collaborated with the likes of Leftfield and The Prodigy, have made a high-profile fan in Iggy Pop and have had 3x UK top 10 albums in the last four years.
“This is a brilliant song. From a brilliant album. It’s been more than an honour to be associated with it in some way” Jason (Sleaford Mods) “Great song writing here, it was a pleasure to work on the remix” Andrew (Sleaford Mods)
On ‘Nothing Really Changes (Sleaford Mods Remix)’ the duo slow down the tempo and turn up the funk, transforming the beloved heartbreak song into five and a half minutes of feel-good bliss. Vager’s iconic line ‘Baby don’t you know, everyone is sad’ manages to land with less despair, instead lending a hopeful and harmonious outlook on a chapter closing.
Released in June, ‘Brain Worms’ was dubbed “the sound of a band at the height of their rock powers´ (Rolling Stone Australia), “one of their finest moments yet” (ABC), and “contender for the best indie-rock album of 2023)” (NME), while also receiving 4-star reviews from The Guardian and Uncut. The record landed Double J Feature Album, PSB Album of the Week, 2RRR Album of the Week, 2SER Album of the Week and RTRFM Feature Album.
Following killer performances at Splendour in the Grass, Rising: and Dark Mofo, the band are taking their beloved album on the road, playing 21 album release shows across Australia, the UK, and Europe from October till December including Pitchfork Music Festival.
‘Nothing Really Changes (Sleaford Mods Remix)’ is the first of three glorious remixes, with two to come from Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and Huntly’s Andy McEwan aka Ahm.
