about

Casey Desmond and Casey Grabowski met in late summer of 2014 while Desmond was finalizing her East Coast tour, sharing 2 billings in and around Philadelphia. Desmond was billed as herself, and Grabowski as the Philadelphia-based synth-wave group NEAREST.
Like many performers who share a stage, they loosely discussed collaboration and over the next year they worked to make it happen.

In February 2016, Desmond released her 1st EP under the moniker CMB aka Cosmic Microwave Background, which featured their collab track EV. EV infuses Desmond's striking, up-front pop vocal, and lush synth pads, into Grabowski’s curated mix of cold orchestral stabs, and wandering arppegios, giving new life to each other’s take on the song's concept. The lyrics, in simple terms, are about the difficulty of letting go.

The Casey's are happy to announce this remix package of “EV”, which features 5 new versions, as well as the original version for reference. The goal was to allow the remixers to take significant liberty on the concept, while still keeping some core elements. The result is an interesting array of work, ranging from cold-wave, to new-school house, to ambient glitch.

Track Name: EV Original Mix feat NEAREST
We were tied the two of us
Driving blindly into dust
There were hands just trying find where they belong
Came together long ago
Ended quickly with a blow
Understand I never meant to do you wrong

We have been hard wired, energy vampires
Electrical love fires, energy vampires
Will suck you dry

There were two of us at first
But our little bubbles burst
Now we’re at each others jugulars at best
When we had ourselves a time
Never left our souls behind
But I guess it’s time to put these dreams to rest

We have been hard wired, energy vampires
Electrical love fires, energy vampires
Will suck you dry

Rain your heart fire down on me
Rain your love fire down on me
Rain your blood fire down on me
Let any pain be cast into the sea

We have been hard wired, energy vampires
Electrical love fires, energy vampires
Will suck you dry
