As we all know it’s not easy to admit you were wrong but on this occasion, no matter how difficult it is, I must admit I was wrong about Katy B. When my attention was first drawn Katy B with her debut release I wasn’t impressed. The music seemed extremely over produced and in many cases the boring; her single ‘broken record’ literally was like that. Whether that was the intention or not I’m unsure but personally not a successful technique in making good quality music.
With her second album however I was stunned to silence. I listened to the new Katy B material with an already negative viewpoint but after hearing the 30 second preview of ‘5 AM’ on iTunes I had to hear more. Every single has been strong and the vocals of Katy B have definitely improved on album number 2. The album ‘Little Red’ is full of upbeat pop songs with great beats, not something I thought I would say about Katy B so I’ll do the right thing hear and just say it; I was wrong.
