Phoebe Bridgers Shares Three New ‘Kyoto’ Remixes


Phoebe Bridgers recently shared three new remixes of her Punisher single “Kyoto.”

The remixes are from Glitch Gum (who previously covered “Kyoto”), Bartees Strange, and the Marías, with each of them bringing their own style and sound to the song.

“I wanted to find a way to make this song hit in a completely different way, but still retain some of the big and small moments that make the song special to me,” Strange said of his remix.

He added, “At first I was thinking through how I could use the stems, but the more I got into it the more I wanted to take it somewhere else entirely. Crushing tune, glad I could mess around with it.”

“I thought, ‘Man, what if Phoebe Bridgers did hyperpop?'” Gum said in a press release. “That idea turned into a 30-second snippet of ‘Kyoto,’ which turned into a full song, which turned into working with Phoebe and her team to make this little quarantine project come full circle in ways I could never even fathom.”

“It was so fun deconstructing the musical realms of both Phoebe and I and combining them into something that filled the hyperpop-indie-crossover-shaped hole in my brain,” he added.

“I remember seeing Phoebe years ago at an open mic here in Los Angeles, and I knew right off the bat that she was really special,” the Marías said in a press release. “Working on this remix was a full-circle moment for us.”

They added, “‘Kyoto’ is an amazing song as is, so with the remix, we were just curious to see what it would sound like with the vocal slowed down and adding some of our favorite synth sounds behind it.”
