"This remix of 'Street Pulse Beat' came from the depths of springtime lockdown. In a bleak and uncertain world, Special Interest was keeping our creative spirit alive. This remix was made entirely with the OB-6, SH-101, and the JV-1080. Trading in distorted guitars for plucky bent synths, Boy Harsher's remix offers their signature melancholy sound. Ali Logout' confidently controls the energy, reminding us that synthwave can still have a backbone and can hang with the punks.” - Boy Harsher
Adding to this, Special Interest vocalist Alli Logout said the track is "A ballad for lovers delusions of grandeur in the depth of the terror that is codependency."
