White Prism - "Fool" Ladytron Remix (MP3) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

10 October 2013

We have been featuring a lot of synth pop lately, which is inevitable as synth pop has been having its greatest resurgence since the 1980s.
 

White Prism (a.k.a. Johanna Cranitch) is very much a part of that neo synth scene. That said “Fool” actually had other inspirations. Cranitch recently told Idolator that “[she] was listening to a bit of Paula Abdul and Mariah Carey‘s first record when I wrote this. I guess it’s about unrequited love. That vibe you get into where you like someone so much that you just stare at the phone hoping they’ll call, but you can’t call them because you don’t know how they really feel about you.” Now Ladytron has taken the song and sped up the tempo, upped the pop quotient and added some additional dancey beats.
