EP Review: Johan Reinhold – Shoot Me Down (The Remix EP)
It’s not often that we review an EP of remixes of the same song yet this one has made us make an exception because, well quite frankly, it’s flipping awesome. Sweden’s Johan Reinhold has created a wonderful track in it’s own right. Shoot Me Down captures an Eric Clapton-esque guitar introand takes it in a totally different direction with the rest of the song. It took exactly one listen to fall for this song. In fact even that’s a slight stretch of the truth, I was already getting fully involved half way through. I don’t want it to end and the fact that it’s so well produced also is really quite important. It feels well cared for rather than over baked in the studio. The instrumentation is equally intricate in parts as it is simple and sparse in other places. The vocal is strong and gives a firm punch to the lyrics, which are well written and are one of the most important aspects of what makes this track as good as it is.
