KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See

26 November Critic Jonni 0 Comments

KT Tunstall, real name Kate Tunstall, has been around for quite some time. This song, however, is her highest UK charting single to date. I woke up with this song in my head, thanks to the amazing show "Being Erica" as this song sounds pretty similar to the theme tune which is "All I Ever Wanted" sung by Lily Frost.

"Suddenly I See" was written by KT Tunstall, as expected. The song is a tribute to female power, however it is one of those songs that could mean a whole range of stuff. This is what truly makes a song good. 2 people could listen to a song, both could like it lots, however for one it holds a dear emotional link and makes them stronger, for the other it may make them reflect on life and realise what they've been doing wrong. A song this powerful that can help the whole world deserves to be number one, unfortunately it only got to number 12 on the UK chart.

This music video is a pure performance piece, but what makes it stand out is that they've mixed it up and made it very different to what we are used to. It's a clever concept, and makes it seem symmetrical but they're two different performances of the song, put together. Which shows the variety we might get if we saw her live. Not my sort of thing, but a lot of people will enjoy it, and like how different it will be.

Of course I have a few things I don't like. That guy moving about. I don't know what he is doing, is he taking photos, or is he recording? I'm not sure, so why did they include him? Not only that but he messes it all up when the 2nd band comes through as he is standing right where the first one should be. It's confusing and annoying.

Overall a great song that I have already mentioned, should have been number one. The music video is interesting and different, however not much is going on to really draw my attention. However I like how you can see the looks the two bands give each other. Personally, I would've liked that to have been played up just that little bit more, like they were competing against one another.
