While he may have gotten on the radar thanks to YouTube covers of the likes of Deerhunter and Beach House, Young Man’s Colin Caulfield has steadily grown into his own identity as an artist. That’s something that stands out on Young Man’s recently released third album, Beyond Was All Around Me, a confident, fleshed-out effort that showcases plenty of classic art-pop chops, while also revealing some inventive touches all Caulfield’s own. Indeed, the distinct qualities of Caulfield’s songwriting voice can’t help but come through even in this remix of the single “In a Sense” by London producer Maths Time Joy. More focused on rhythmic elements than the melodic synth-pop of the original version, the remixed “In a Sense”, premiering on PopMatters, still manages to bring out the essence of Young Man’s yearning sound, drawing out its tender grace in a distilled state.
