Fresh off the release of the music video, Tonedeff dons his producer cap to provide an exclusive “QN5 RMX” of Fjer’s “Children” single. Enlisting the additional talents of QN5’s Substantial and Rocksteady Crew’s DJ JS-1 to add even more flavor, Tonedeff flips the eerie restraint of the original track into a bombastic, sample-laden break-fest with cuts galore and triumphant synth stabs layered over the Danish singer/songwriter’s wilting piano riff and wistful vocals. This one’s definitely not to be missed.

“Children” is taken from Fjer’s forthcoming concept EP, Beautiful Home which you can pre-order right now via Bandcamp.

LYRICS

SUBSTANTIAL (V1):
Repeat it repeat then say I don’t need it at all
Now a heart that is bleeding that just loves to dream of the fall
Find myself feeding off memories when we were small
Man, it’s hard to believe that you were keeping me so enthralled
Sharing our summer secrets while playing in the pool
Warm water & thoughts in record heat I’d play it cool
Masking my real feelings by splashing you and being cruel
Trying to avoid the deep end… callow beautiful fools

FJER:
Years after riding the roller coaster that was you and me
I still sometimes look back and I see the child in me.

A woman in love with a child
Like day and night – the sun is bound to go down
You pushed me in the lake, you made me scream
In the bitter end, I will drown.

Like children on a playground,
We run around. Run around.
To do it all again.

Deep down in the core of me, I can still feel the pain.
Do you remember when I fell – tall as I was?
Broke my hand and bent my ribs.
They have been crooked ever since.

A woman in love with a child
Like day and night – the sun is bound to go down
You pushed me in the lake, you made me scream
In the bitter end, I will drown.

Like children on a playground,
We run around. Run around.
To do it all again.

SUBSTANTIAL (V2)
Spring flowers we trample as we turn round and around
Some pressures we couldn’t handle but refused to put it down
Freest time of our lives but to each other we were bound
Inspiration behind my smiles… architect of my frowns
Chilled for several winters how many I hardly know
Treaded on thin ice or frolicking in the snow
Now that I’m older these nights feel colder that I remember
Sittin’ in an empty playground haunted by children’s whispers
