A Pair Of ‘I Want the Door to Open’remixes
from Lucy Gooch and Open Mike Eagle

Ahead of UK dates starting next weekLala Lala releases Ph0t0c0pies’, a selection of remixes of tracks from her 2021 album ‘I Want The Door to Open’, available now on all DSPs from Hardly Art. This digital-only release feature reworks of the songs “Photo Photo” by Bristol-based Ambient musician Lucy Gooch and “Color of the Pool” by LA-based art rapper Open Mike Eagle.

This collection focuses on this immense attention to detail, from the ethereal Lucy Gooch Remix which delivers this charming, magical, and meaningful remix embracing the delicate duplications and sweeping softer tones. Whereas the Open Mike Eagle Remix celebrates this abrasive push, piercing, and unpredictable hits alter the sweeter harmonies, bringing space and sincerity together.

Originally from Norfolk, Lucy Gooch studied Fine Art and later moved to Bristol to join the emerging ambient scene there – gradually developing her writing and finally releasing her debut Rushing EP in early 2020. Upon signing to Fire, she has released a further EP Rain’s Break which continued to win plaudits from fans and critics alike, and is currently writing her debut album. Earlier this year, Lucy reissued a vinyl version of her Rushing EP and has performed at her first festivals including The Great Escape, Green Man and Glastonbury.  Lucy shares that she approached this remix with the “spirited and immediate nature of the record, working with producer Alistair Lax on the arrangement to surround Lillie’s early music-inspired vocal motifs with a big electronic sound.”
Open Mike Eagle is an incisive, hilarious, and idiosyncratic purveyor of art rap found, having most recently released 2022’s Component System with the Auto Reverse. His music has been praised by The New York Times, Pitchfork, The New Yorker, and more. 
Lala Lala’s Lillie West comments: “I’m honoured to have Open Mike Eagle and Lucy Gooch, two artists I deeply admire, put their spin on two songs from the record.”
