Phoebe Bridgers' track "Kyoto" has been remixed by three different artists ranging from Bartees Strange's cover to the Marías' more psychadelic synth version toGlitch Gum's hyperpop take. Check out the versions below:
[Bartees Strange Remix (really a cover, show off your great voice, Bartees!)]
"I wanted to find a way to make this song hit in a completely different way, but still retain some of the big and small moments that make the song special to me. At first, I was thinking through how I could use the stems, but the more I got into it the more I wanted to take it somewhere else entirely. Crushing tune, glad I could mess around with it."
[The Marías Remix]
"I remember seeing Phoebe years ago at an open mic here in Los Angeles, and I knew right off the bat that she was really special. Working on this remix was a sort of full-circle moment for us. ‘Kyoto’ is an amazing song as-is, so with the remix, we were just curious to see what it would sound like with the vocal slowed down and adding some of our favorite synth sounds behind it."
[Glitch Gum Remix]
"All I know is one day when I was in between Zoom classes last Fall, I thought, ‘Man, what if Phoebe Bridgers did hyper pop?’ That idea turned into a 30-second snippet of ‘Kyoto’, which turned into a full song, which turned into working with Phoebe and her team to make this little quarantine project come full circle in ways I could never even fathom. It was so fun deconstructing the musical realms of both Phoebe and I and combining them into something that filled the hyper pop-indie-crossover-shaped hole in my brain. I am just really happy with how it turned out and forever thankful for Phoebe, her friends, and their continuous support."

I'm not sure why she's releasing "Kyoto" remixes now but Phoebe stays in the public eye!
