Unlike the name of the album, the four tracks on The Gold EP fail to shimmer and shine. Being a fan of both La Roux and remixes in general I was excited to hear the “Bullet Proof” in a new format, but it was kind of a let down.
The first and last track stand out a bit, but what lies in between does little for the listener’s ear. The first track is a live version of the song which you can hear Elly Jackson’s exciting performance through the music. What follows are 2 indistinguishable remixes. The last remix by Fred Falke features a more remixed sound with a mix of guitar vibrations adding another layer to the music. This EP kind of leaves me feeling like I’ve listened to the song on repeat, not three remixes
