Expanding Crywolf’s OBLIVION [Reimagined] series is a joint recreation of “QUIXØTE” from Alone Architect and Kassia Vera. Together, they capitalize on the pure vulnerability in Crywolf’s original, creating an arrangement that honors without straying far from the raw emotions felt.
Alone Architect is the moniker of songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Feldman. For this release, he enlisted assistance from vocalist and visual artist Kassia Vera to create the chillingly cinematic soundscapes heard in this recreation to “QUIXØTE.” Something else to note: this cover is the first release ever from Kassia Vera; this joint effort marking the first of many musical collaborations to come.
Give the reimagination a listen below:
“In approaching this reimagined version of ‘QUIXØTE,’ it was really important for us to explore the vulnerability & intimacy present at the song’s core. There’s so much nuance, emotion and vulnerability in his (Crywolf’s) music that our focus was to really strip back the song to what we felt was its sacred core, and aim to just honor and explore those elements in as emotive and dynamic a way as possible.
The OBLIVION [Reimagined] series has seen revamped versions of tracks from Crywolf’s recent studio album, widow [OBLIVION pt. 1]. Alone Architect and Kassia Vera’s remix of “QUIXØTE” joins remixes from Mielo (“DRIP“) LEViT?TE (“ULTRAVIOLENT Pt. II“), RONiiT (“FOREIGN TONGUES“), and more.
