Listen Down: Caroline Polachek Collaborates with Oneohtrix Point Never and Danny L Harle for Extended Mix of ‘The Gate’, Watch the Video

Caroline Polachek has released an extended version of the cut from 2019’s ‘Pang’ along with a video by Ezra Miller.

A year to the date of releasing October of 2018’s record ‘Pang’, Caroline Polachek has memorialized the day with an extended mix of album opener ‘The Gate.’ The track was released via her Orchard imprint ‘Perpetual Novice.’ Polachek said in a press release that she personally mixed the new track alongside “textural contributions” from Oneohtrix Point Never and Danny L Harle. ‘The Gate (Extended Mix)’ is accompanied by a music video by Ezra Miller.

Polachek elucidates the lyrical content in the press release saying: “In the original version of the song, the closing lyric (‘Finally, there’s a way/To be both free and safe’) are the words I’m waiting to hear, but never do. The extended version of the song then is a sort of parallel universe or alternate ending, where those words not only arrive, but ring true.”

The ‘extended mix’ is sparse and tight much like the original ( despite the ‘textural contributions’ ) and evokes vignettes of listening to Enya in the bathtub in the mid 90’s — simultaneously in the best and worst ways.
