Premiere: Kilig – Blue Coat, Red Dress (1-800 Girls Remix)


Every morning he'd spot her at the bus stop, her red coat a tell tale sign that the day had officially started. He didn't know her, but he felt as if he did. For almost a year now he'd tried to get her to notice him; no words were exchanged but he was certain now that she knew who he was. There was something strangely bewitching about her presence, almost otherworldly. As if she'd just happened upon earth by accident…

Night Tales resident Kilig made a splash earlier this year with his debut release for Silver Bear Recordings, ‘Blue Coat, Red Dress’. As an appendix to the release – and to pledge his support to the elderly in our community, particularly during the pandemic – Kilig has invited some friends to contribute their own takes on his last EP, including reworks from Third Son, 1-800 Girls, Jacana People, Zaltsman, Kincaid, Louf & Wayward.

A message from Kilig: I want this release to highlight the mental impact that the current situation is having on the elderly in our communities. Not only are they the most vulnerable age group, but when you’re over 70 and being told to remain indoors for a long period of time, things can get really lonely. People rely heavily on those small day to day interactions, be that something as simple as getting a coffee or visiting family and friends. We’re raising money for ‘Age UK’ to help them provide regular contact and companionship for the people who need it most. A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this remix EP, I am massively grateful!

Stay safe, Call the people you love, This isn’t forever.
