Australian producer, singer and songwriter Woodes recently released her soulful track “The Thaw” with a somber yet uplifting music video to accompany it. Now the track is getting fresh remixes with the help of three up-and-coming talents that take Woodes’ original idea into fresh new directions. Check out the SODF remix here:
To help with the remixes, Woodes enlisted Australian indie producer Lupa J, German sibling production duo DNKR, and Sydney-based house duo SODF to give “The Thaw” chill house and deep house vibes that transition the track into the club scenes flawlessly. The three tracks are available on the digital “The Thaw Remix EP.” Woodes has been collaborating with local and international artists including Kilter, Milwaukee Banks, Set Mo, Kintaro, FØRD and Golden Vessel, so we expect more great sounding collaborations in the near future.
Woodes’ vocals on “The Thaw” showcases her poetic lyrics mixed with echoed textures that create an ethereal sound that is uniquely her own. The song debuted at #12 on the iTunes Norway Alternative Chart. Her debut 2016 solo single “Daggers and Knives” has already had more than 300,000 plays and has been receiving frequent rotation on numerous radio stations. Get up to date with the original version of “The Thaw” with the striking video here:
The video was shot on location in Lake Mountain with Josh Harris (Welcome The Machines) that shows off the ice and snow found in the Australian mountains. Woodes worked with choreographer Courtney Hale to create flowing movement, which complimented her artistic vision for the track.
“I wanted to shoot on location where it was possible,” Woodes said. “Shooting on location provides an array of new variables to work with, the main one being the weather, which we had to closely monitor in order to shoot up so high with drones. My favorite part is the final shot. It looks like a movie, a game or a painting but it is entirely natural and unedited. It gives a full scope of the beauty of those mountains, all built in layers on the horizon, covered in mist.”
Woodes has just wrapped up touring around Australia supporting Dustin Tebutt on his “First Light” Australian National Tour and will be joining Montaigne on her sold out “Glorious Heights” National Tour. If you’re in Australia, be sure to check her out on her upcoming tour schedule:
