RVG present three delicious remixes of their beloved album track ‘Nothing Really Changes’ by Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa, Huntly’s Andy McEwan aka Ahm and 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.
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.” – Sleaford Mods
“I’ve been friends with RVG for many years and have watched their meteoric rise with so much adoration, so it’s such an honour to have them trust me to rip their song apart. There’s a real anger bubbling just underneath the surface of Romy’s performance on Nothing Really Changes, and I hope my remix helps it rear its head.” – AHM
“I’m a big RVG fan, so was naturally thrilled when asked to do a remix for the band. I wanted to keep the elements as analog and ‘real’ as possible, no soft synths or computer trickery. I primarily used a Korg Ms20, a Linn Drum LM2, a Yamaha CS synthesizer, my drum kit and loads of percussion (even some bongos!). I had a blast making it and hope it is a similarly enjoyable listening experience.” – Stella Mozgawa
Released in June, RVG’s ‘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.
