MARKING her first release of 2022, Scottish singer-songwriter Kitti has made a sensational return with the release of ‘How Long?’.
With a voice that towers over any piece of music she lays her hands on – unhindered by genre, time or place – we’ve seen her shift from the smooth and sultry to wistful and introspective to universally life-affirming.
On this latest track though, we find her angry, frustrated and in dire need of release. She channels these feelings into four minutes of emphatic and bombastic jazz. It’s a compelling listen – one that opens in rather meditative fashion before building and building with layers of funky, squelching bass lines, keys, guitar and a virtuosic solo and horn arrangement.
With her vocals front and centre, it’s an emphatic exercise in catharsis, channelling the frustration of being locked in and unable to see family and friends into an explosive, towering performance. Bursting with spontaneity, it adds a powerful new level to her already impressive catalogue.
