New York electronic artist Vitesse X surprises with a brand new single, a cover of Pinback’s ‘Fortress’. The new song marks the first release of the talented producer since 2023 singles ‘In The Balance’, ‘Right Now’ and ‘Ricochet’ and a collaboration with TDJ.

Vitesse X offers a perfect cover of Pinback’s ‘Fortress’, maintaining the atmosphere and spirit of the original while adding a fresh electronic touch to her version. The new track feels like a slight change in direction for Vitesse X and we are totally hear for it. The dreamy atmosphere, soothing vocals and the touch of guitar totally fit her brilliant electronic production. We wouldn’t mind hearing more in the vein of this style!

About the new single she says:

“In 2023, I found myself gravitating more to guitar-based indie music again. I think I might have been craving a sense of solace from the heaviness of current events and maximalist nature of modern production. Tapping back into my sonic roots felt like an escape to a simpler, calmer moment in time. I was listening to ‘Fortress’ by Pinback on my walk to work one day, and thought it would be fun to try out a cover for the first time. I was having a hard time getting into a creative flow, so I treated it as an exercise to not overthink and just enjoy the process, and this is what came out.”

Fortress‘ is out now on all platforms via Music Website.
