Stylish, tasteful, and dark. Florida artist Brey debutd on Cosmic Wire with her ‘Getaway Car’ EP, out today. To compliment the pummeling, electro pop original, the highly talented and classically trained multi-instrumentalist’s single gets a lo-fi rework by label heads, BJ Klock and BLAZAR.
Brey shares, “having hit some of my lowest moments in life with these mental health issues, I really wanted to capture those raw emotions of what it’s like living with these issues through lyrics such as, ‘I’m dodging daggers through my mind’s minefield.’ By sharing ‘Getaway Car’ with people, I wanted to give the message of hope and escape. That where you may be, isn’t where you have to stay.”
The single starts with an isolated drum track and picks up quickly with a rhythmic vocal track by Brey. Soon after, the backing track also picks up and the vocals soar over the next phrase. Following a simple, but highly effective AB song structure, Brey invokes a highly stylish and empowering track about marching on.
The laid back, lo-fi version follows, capturing the raw emotion of the lyrics in an unapologetic execution. For the introspective remix the label co-founder, expert growth-hacker and electronic music producer, BJ Klock presses his first Cosmic Wire record and collaboration with BLAZAR. BJ Klock brought the guitar melody while BLAZAR added his signature vocal work, retro soundscapes, courtesy of the Juno-6 and JX-3p and movement with old school, analog 808 drums.
BLAZAR comments on the remix, “I love dichotomies in music. I wanted it to be this laid back kind of organic lounge-ish type of vibe; more “in your head” than the hit the pavement driven and linear path of the original. This song really has a special place in my heart being the co-writer with Aubrey on the track. It was a ton of fun to re-imagine.”
While Aubrey Greeley can play Tchaikovski and Debussy on the cello, she has hinted at giving the classic instrument a modern edge with upcoming productions. At the age of 19, ‘Getaway Car’ is just the beginning of her healing music under the Cosmic Wire imprint.
Brey’s tough and heartening attitude is a fierce reminder to love yourself. Aubrey relates, “it’ll be okay one day. Maybe not right now, but someday. So until then, take a deep breath and love yourself a little bit harder today; until one day, it isn’t so hard.“
