pacificUV has been making their unique brand of low-key space rock for almost fifteen years. They’re preparing to release their third album in January, and are offering fans a preview with a new EP, titled Chrysalis. On the EP, which is available as a free download, they offer up remixes of tracks from the upcoming album as well as a take on The Smiths’ classic single “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want.”

Half shoegaze and half dreamy dance, their take on “Please Please Please” departs significantly from the introspective Smiths version. pacificUV puts a futuristic spin on Morrissey and Co’s bare-bones arrangement with some fuzzy synth and distant, monotone vocals. They create a track that is both more lush and more impersonal than The Smiths’ melancholy original.
