Lush’s Emma Anderson shares exhilarating new ‘Inter Light’ remix

Lush co-founder Emma Anderson has shared a new remix of her 2023 song ‘Inter Light’ – you can listen to it below.

The original version of the track appears on Anderson’s acclaimed debut solo album, ‘Pearlies’, which was released last October.

Now, Brighton-based duo Memorials – aka Matthew Simms and Verity Susman – have brought some “’60s spy movie vibes” to ‘Inter Light’ by adding “fuzzed out guitars, drums and distorted tape noise for a much more exhilarating listen”.

Speaking about the reimagining, Anderson explained: “It kind of slims down the structure but increases the dynamics of the track overall which I love.

“There are real drums and more overdriven guitars. Also, the original fades but Matthew and Verity have put an ending on it which is almost my favourite part of the track. It really is a great rework.”

‘Inter Light (Memorials Mix)’ is the first in a series of rearranged versions of songs from last year’s ‘Pearlies’. The original 10-track album was originally produced and mixed by James Chapman (aka Maps), and features Suede‘s Richard Oakes on guitar on several songs.

Lush broke up for the second time back in 2016 after returning for their first run of shows in two decades earlier that year. They also released an EP, ‘Blind Spot’, containing their first music since 1996.

In a joint statement at the time, the group wrote: “It’s been wonderful to revisit our old music and to create new material. However, it is now time for us to return to our families and homes, and bring our time together as a band to a close.”

Then, in 2018, Lush’s Miki Berenyi formed a new supergroup called Piroshka with Elastica’s Justin Welch, Moose’s KJ McKillop and Modern English’s Michael Conroy. Their debut album, ‘Brickbat’, was released in early 2019 via Bella Union.
