A good remix re-envisions a song. Mood can be altered, new textures added, and sometimes the end result is so different from the original that a listener can hardly tell they’re the same song. Before Spirit Animal remixed Jenny O’s “Won’t Let You Leave,” it was a delicate acoustic song, heartfelt and filled with sunshiny vibes. Spirit Animal’s remix transforms it with heavy bass lines, repetitive backing vocals and a warped acoustic guitar.
