Indie pop star Remi Wolf just released We Love Dogs!, a remix EP featuring reworked tracks from her 2019 debut EP, You’re A Dog!, and 2020’s critically acclaimed I’m Allergic To Dogs! EP. The 15-track album features guest appearances and remixes from acts such as Beck, Free Nationals, Hot Chip, Sylvan Esso, Little Dragon, Nile Rodgers, Kimbra, Polo & Pan, Panda Bear, Dominic Fike, L’Impératrice, Tune Yards, Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Phony Ppl and Porches.

The EP follows the release of remixes from electronic pop duo Sylvan Esso for the track “Rufufus,” Kimbra for “Down The Line,” and Hot Chip for “Disco Man.” 

“This is very sick,” Wolf says of the release. “Half of these artists are ones I studied in school and have admired since I was a teenager. Needless to say, I’m shook! I hope you dance, vibe, shower, and chill to these remixes! I hope you make a lasagna or an eggplant parmesan while you listen to them, too!!!”

You’re A Dog! featured breakout singles “Guy” and “Shawty” that introduced Wolf’s “colorful funk-pop authenticity.” Wolf soon released her sophomore EP I’m Allergic To Dogs! in June 2020. The 5-track EP included tracks such as “Hello Hello Hello,” “Photo ID,” and “Disco Man.” 3-D rendered visuals created by Dazed 100-nominated director Agusta Yr accompanied the singles

“Photo ID” gained virality through TikTok, reaching more than 10 billion views across the platform, and was featured in Instagram’s global “More To Heart” commercial. The single was also included in a mash-up with “Hello Hello Hello.” “Hello Hello Hello” received a remix from Polo & Pan that was used in Apple’s global ad campaign for the iPhone 12 and Snapchat’s international commercial for its new Sound feature. “Monte Carlo,” a standalone and standout single following the EP, was featured in the worldwide commercial for Samsung’s Galaxy Buds earphone. “Photo ID” recently received a rework from Dominic Fike.

Last year, Wolf pulled off L.A.’s first drive-in show of 2020. Proceeds went directly to support the Plus1 For Black Lives Fund and the local L.A. charity Summaeverythang. Remi Wolf will hit the festival circuit this year and perform at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Life Is Beautiful.
