You Think I’m Horny is one of the standouts from debut album Desire, released in August on Mute. And now Marea and Planningtorock present a fresh take on the track – Planningtobehorny

I absolutely love Desire Marea and their new album is stunning” says Planningtorock. “When I first heard ‘You Think I’m Horny’ I totally fell in love with the story and Desire’s beautiful voice and couldn’t wait to spend time with the song and remix it…. Such an honor

Planningtobehorny remix follows Ggom originator Griffit Vigo’s rework of Tavern Kween, from album Desire. The album is an exploration of loss, displacement, and the terrifying manifestations of love in the contemporary world. The expansive exploration of spirituality and the divine is palpable. It skilfully interlaces snapshots from decidedly grounded human experiences. It serves as a captivating introduction to their singular and multi-faceted world.
