I featured the Catching Flies remix of Kwabs' "Perfect Ruin" in my Sunday Coffee v6 mix. I hadn't heard the original until yesterday, though, and I'm happy to report it's a stunning track, even without the massaging of a DJ. Spare piano and production accompany Kwabs' deep, soulful voice, with a melody that reveals itself on multiple listens.
The accompanying video by George Belfield at Somesuch would be remarkable even if the song wasn't so. Wide, panoramic winter shots begin urban and become more natural as the video progresses. A marvel of sight and sound - "Perfect Ruin" proves to be an amazing second single from a relatively new artist to the scene.
