Perhaps the definition of a naked performance, this live version of Perfect Ruin by London based musician Kwabs is startlingly raw and beautiful. As shown in the video below, Kwabs sits exposed in a derelict room beside nothing but a piano (and pianist), leaving no gimmicks or distractions to draw the viewer / listener away from his voice.
Honey sweet and rich like chocolate, Kwabs soulful vocal line is faultlessly clear and moving, resonating powerfully above the song’s haunting blues-influenced piano accompaniment. If you like what you hear, you can download this for FREE from the songs soundcloud page. To do so, click here!
