Incredibly stirring and dripping with melancholy, this song serves as a potent showcase of LA-based musician Kadhja Bonet’s talent.
Not only does she sing beautifully, she also plays flute and strings on this too. The show off!
The flute is particularly lovely, in my opinion. It adds a wistful air, bolstered by the strings and slow plucked guitar.
Kadhja’s version of the song doesn’t improve on the original markedly – but how could you? 21st Century’s 1975 original is stunning soul/R’n’B gold.
But what she does do, is take a fantastic song, and make it her own, convincingly. Her version is more elegant; delicate and haunting.
You can find the song on her Bandcamp. It was released as a single in 2015.
