Tokky Horror, the new project of ex-Queen Zee vocalist Zee Davine, Mollie Rush and Ava Akira, have released their new EP Girlracer: The Remixes. The four track record features all-new versions of their debut single Girlracer.
“I wanted to challenge the gender binary in a minimal way by expressing my attraction to the boy racer aesthetic,” Rush explains of the original version of the track. “Since I was a kid I’ve always wanted aerofoils, subwoofers, LEDs and loud cars. I’ve always felt a connection to that and I just want everyone to know that these things are not reserved for cis lads in trackies. Be whoever you want, drive your gorgeous Citroën saxo and make people feel weird.”
Girlracer: The Remixes features cuts from friends of the band including Gullyteen, Dan Larkin, Phonewifey, and Bobby Starchild, with four additional remixes from Space, A.P.a.T.t, SIT DOWN and Zee Davine available exclusively on BandCamp.
“We’re from a scene where everyone is a producer, DJ, or band, so it just made sense to let our friends have some fun with the single,” Davine comments. “A lot of remix culture now is about the business and furthering your own name, cashing in off each other’s fanbases. We wanted to just take it back to community and enjoyment. It was a way to connect with our scene while raves and live music are banned for the foreseeable future.”
