Today’s Indie: How Will I Know / Sam Smith (Whitney Houston cover)

‘I fall in love whenever we meet’

Sam Smith is no stranger to transforming songs with the tone of his voice – when his vocals in Disclosure’s Latch are slowed down and stripped of their beats, it goes from a dance floor anthem to a slow, stirring proclamation of commitment. But to hear him take Whitney’s almost unrecognizable 80’s dance hit of a school girl crush level of adoration, make a few necessary lyrical changes and then ground it into one of the best ballads I have heard this year is unreal. I have had this on repeat all week since my friend Jen sent it my way with the message: “Serious good. So much wow.” Pretty much sums it up. #indie
