Katy B // Go Away (Live Stripped Version)
Katy B’s “On A Mission” ended up surprising me and becoming one of my favourite albums last year. It is a great album from start the finish, with a clear sound which flows well from track to track.
All of the songs on the record are special, but if there’s one that deserved to get the single treatment it’s “Go Away”. With it’s R&B melody, Katy’s voice slides effortlessly against Geeneus’ slow dubstep beat. However at the Royal Festival Hall this year Katy performed a gorgeous stripped back version of the song, which came as a pleasant surprise for me when I came across it on youtube.
Katy turns the song into an atmospheric piano ballad, showing particular power in her voice that I wasn’t expecting. It truly is gorgeous, and an extremely interesting take on the track. Apart from a sound noise at the start of the video everything is high quality, so go ahead and watch it and you’ll see just how impressive Katy is live.
