Kwabs Strips Back ‘Last Stand’ & Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’ For BBC Radio 1


By now it's clear as day that we here at SoulBounce can not get enough of UK vocalist Kwabs. And how could we, with his warm and masculine voice that unwaveringly commands attention and gets emotions running high at the drop of a note? Is it even possible to get too much of this good thing? We don't think so.

We premiered Kwabs' special acoustic performance of "Saved" from his new EP, Walk, yesterday, and now we've got your late week Kwabs fix. The golden-voiced singer dropped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge recently to perform a few tracks as part of their Even More Music Month. Accompanied by backing vocalists, keys and guitar, Kwabs performed a stripped-back, haunting version of the SOHN-produced "Last Stand," from his Right Or Wrong EP. Kwabs then went on to give Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" an upbeat, harmony heavy, acoustic makeover. While both tracks are like night and day, the common factor in both is that whether taking on downbeat or light-hearted subject matter, Kwabs and his band manage to deliver an effortlessly raw and gutsy performance, one that will see listeners heading over to iTunes to grab a copy of Kwabs latest EP, Walkwhile they wait for the release of his official debut album next year.
