Manhattan outfit Ratking has reworked Phantogram’s massively popular "Fall in Love,” or rather un-worked it, restoring a simplicity and urgency to the ornate pop song. The resulting track, dubbed “Falling Off,” is a good foil for Wiki's raw, linear lines about anxiety, making music, and growing up. The remix pares down the original track almost past recognition: Sarah Barthel's yearning vocals compact into a choral loop as the song is scrubbed of its fancy studio sheen. The remix might not be about falling hard, but I'm more smitten than ever.
