A new year treat to treasure.
Wolf Alice’s ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ always had a sense of wonder to it, but in the hands of Charli XCX and Post Precious that wonder is amplified to bewitching levels.
Less of a remix, more a rework, Ellie Rowsell’s vocal is set against skittering electro beats, her voice a stark and illuminating contrast with Charli’s distinctive tone. The basis of the original is firmly present but with the visionary approach of Charli XCX it takes on a different and no less beautiful texture.
The original was special enough on its own, but in featuring two of our most singular and vital voices on one track it brings together two different unique strands into one glorious whole. A new year treat to treasure. Martyn Young
