EVERGLOW – Pirate (Selective Hearing Remix)


Release Date: December 1, 2021
Key: G Major
BPM: 130

Pirate is the lead single from EVERGLOW’s third EP Return Of The Girl. Much like more recent EVERGLOW a-sides it’s a high energy dance song meant to grab your attention with its overpowering beats and empowering lyrics.

At first I didn’t like this song much as I felt it didn’t have as much impact as their other a-sides. However, it grew on me and I was curious if I could do anything to add my own twist on it.

The first thing I learned about Pirate is that it doesn’t have the typical linear structure I am used to with pop songs. It hops all over the place which explains why the original version sounds like it’s going a million miles an hour and hitting hard for its entire running time.

The other thing I had to figure out is how to execute the ideas swirling around in my head. I had some basic things I wanted to do for this remix but nothing really concrete.

For Pirate I basically messed around with various sounds until I found something that felt like it worked. Yes, I winged this entire thing with no game plan for what the end product might be.

The final result turned out better than I expected. I guess it’s not bad for having no solid direction to follow.
