I didn’t see the signs Thought I’d found a way out You caught me with those eyes I’m thinkin’ I should leave now A couple words won’t hurt “So what’ you doin' downtown?” You tell me how you’ve been And now my head won’t slow down I shouldn’t stay But can’t help but wonder I hate the way (I love the way) That you pull me under I know I’ve made mistakes But this could be my downfall You could be my downfall You could be my downfall I didn’t mean to stare Couldn’t help but notice A part of me still cares But it’s over and you know this I shouldn’t feel this way You’re fuckin’ with my head now A couple drinks too late You got me thinking out loud I shouldn’t stay But can’t help but wonder I hate the way (I love the way) That you pull me under I know I’ve made mistakes But this could be my downfall You can be my downfall You could be my downfall Don’t try to tell me this is nothing Say it with your hands on my face Don’t try to tell me this is nothing I can count the reasons with my eyes closed Calling your name I’ll find a reason my eyes closed And you can be my downfall (You can be my downfall) I shouldn’t stay But can’t help but wonder I hate the way (I love the way) That you pull me under I know I’ve made mistakes But this could be my downfall You could be my downfall

about

Direct takes the brooding power of Essenger’s "Downfall" and transforms it into an atmospheric, low-key effort with stunning results on this brand new remix. Echoes of Essenger and Lexi Norton’s singing performances drift across Direct’s soundscape while glitchy new instrumentation spreads across the piece for a ghostly reimagining of the original. The Direct remix of "Downfall" is available now on all platforms from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.

"After my first listen of After Dark, I was so inspired by the epic movie-like feeling of the record. When I was invited to remix "Downfall" I knew I had to maintain the epic feeling while adding my sonic twists. What I arrived at was something that could be played in the futuristic nightclub of my dreams." - Direct
