Koda & Bijou | There (Fragics Remix)

September 29, 2014 at 5:39 am Leave a comment


At the end of last year, the prolific Bijou paired up with Koda (aka Jordan Sudak) to create an atmospheric gem of love and fear simply called “There”. Before the opening lyrics sung by Bijou, the original track began like a Radiohead piano ballad, dark like “Pyramid Song”. It began with a low pitch that stretched slowly into an ominous-sounding whistling wind, which bridged into light, lonely piano chords before the chilly duet begins. It’s a song sung in tandem, but comes off as lonely and distant — like a disintegrating love affair. There are some gorgeous verses, my favorite of which is this line sung by both Koda and Bijou: “I’ll stop the daylight and turn away the sun.” This time around both artists have allowed musician Fragics (aka Jay Rodger) to remix the song into something different, kicking it up a notch with warps, electronic hiccups, a new beat, and adding effects to the vocals. — David D. Robbins Jr.
