PREMIERE: RAC - "3 AM" Featuring Katie Herzig

The Portuguese producer returns with the latest tune from his monthly singles series.

For us, this vocal treatment will always be tied to Frou Frou / Imogen Heap. Here singer Katie Herzig's voice comes off clear as a bell, but her lines are echoed by a chorus of robots before some sparkly synths surge forward to create a surprisingly tender pop gem. Listen to those 80s chimes!

Most know the Portugal-born music maker as a remixer extraordinaire, but RAC a.k.a. Andre Alan Anjos has been releasing original cuts since 2012—a tidy supplement to sick reworks of Lana, Phoenix, YYYs, and others. His tune with MNDR and Kele from Bloc Party being a particular highlight.

Premiering above is "3 AM," part of RAC's monthly single series, which, last month crushed it with this hilari-LOLS video for "Back of the Car" starring Karley Sciortino, who you may remember from the VICE series Slutever.

"I left him in ruins and that's what ruins me / But somehow I knew that he would ruin me," sings Herzig. Youch!
