We at THP absolutely adore Regard and his unique approach to production! Between hits like ‘You’ with Troye Sivan and Tate McRae to his recent Kwabs collab ‘Signals,’ each of his songs has a different vibe without straying too far from his signature sound.
He especially has a knack for reimagining his songs in new ways, which makes sense considering his breakout hit was a remix of Jay Sean’s ‘Ride It’ in 2019. That single laid the groundwork for an exciting career full of new twists and musical turns! Let’s take a look at how Regard has revamped his own songs with acoustic versions.
‘Signals’ (With Kwabs)
‘Signals’ is one of Regard’s coolest songs to date, with Kwabs’ vocals adding a soulful layer to Regard’s bouncy production. The acoustic version of ‘Signals’ feels like a stripped-back version of the original song, maintaining the track’s energy with more laidback, yet mysterious, instrumentation.
‘You’ (With Troye Sivan And Tate McRae)
‘You’ goes from an 80s synth-pop bop to a haunting lament of lost love with its acoustic version! The storytelling in the lyrics gets to take center stage, while Troye and Tate flex their knack for showing off emotions in their vocals. We need more collabs from these three!
‘Secrets’ (With RAYE)
RAYE gave ‘Secrets’ a new spin with the “Garden Acoustic” rendition of the track! She broke out her piano and played the song in her backyard. The song just hit 300 million streams on Spotify, and the new version is an ethereal take on such a fun, energetic song.
