Sink by Conner Eko (StoneBridge Remix): Review
Grammy-nominated producer DJ StoneBridge adds his own spin to the Californian indie-pop artist Conner Eko’s debut single, Sink.
Conner Eko’s debut single Sink is a punchy synth-pop emotional piece with a nostalgic sound. Lyrically the song is about someone feeling lost and depressed, straying aimlessly spiraling downwards into nothingness and by random luck finding someone that saves them from the nothingness and sinks into their arm instead. In the process of portraying it, Conner uses beautiful poetic imageries and metaphors like swimming away from the shore and being lost in an island until her waves carried him.
“Oh please just take me
I really want to go
Tired of being bait
I just want a home
All my days have been lost and numbered out at sea
But your waves I have found and they carry me
DJ StoneBridge took this already greatly produced song and added his own touch and made it more suitable for the clubs. He took the 80s vibe of the song and made it modern by making it a bit faster, adding a ton of bass to the beat, shifting some pitches and adding breakdowns and bass drops. Everything great from the original recording like the vocal melodies, the soaring chorus, and the bright synths are still there, they just have a more upbeat energetic vibe with this remix. This song would surely set any dancefloor on fire.
