#TBT “Cold Little Heart” – Michael Kiwanuka

Rarely do throwback jams, and this doesn’t really fit as one of those because it is still fairly new but after discovering the live version of this song and the success of the show Big Little Lies I had to bring this masterpiece back in the fold. Firstly, we need to talk about the spine-tingling intro the song has. It leaves the hair standing on the back of your neck  raised in a similar way that the intro for In The Air Tonight does. This song obviously hasn’t reached that status yet but its flirting with that notion. And then we get into the actual song, which is so very beautiful. It leaves you feeling aviator-shades-driving-along-the-coast-in-California-cool and a little funkadelic. You can hear the yearning and passion in Michael’s voice and you’re ready to risk it all like the ladies on Big Little Lies. Shoutout to Queen Witherspoon.
