I guess it was almost two weeks ago when I promised you a quick overview for the “Don’t Change” single that was done by the talented ladies in Kingston & Greystarr and here we go. If my doing this is brand-new news to you then you didn’t likely see the video which I really enjoyed and recommend that you check out by clicking HERE. After you’re done we can touch upon the single which like the video is an independently released project. Continue reading “Don’t Change” (Single) by Kingston & Greystarr→
If my memory serves me properly, my first awareness of the musical duo known as Kingston & GreyStarr came when they were backing vocalists for guitarist Punky Meadows. Punky is an original member of the band Angel and he had assembled a whole company of players to bring originals and Angel classics to life. I loved the dynamic that the ladies brought to those songs and now they seem to have branched out on their own and offered up a take on “Don’t Change”, a song by INXS that was sung by the late great Michael Hutchence. I’ve secured the Official Video and will share my thoughts down below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now before I say too much on this, be aware that this is mostly going to be a review of the video itself and not the actual single of the music. I like to do those separately because it just builds up the content base all the better. That being said, “Don’t Change” was the first song that I ever heard from INXS and I just loved it. Back in my youthful music upbringing I had a strong love for the New Wave sound and this one was indeed a special track to me. So about the video, its essentially a live, in studio performance video with no overall storyline behind it and we find both Kingston and GreyStarr singing and dancing around across the track with the occasional visual of a band member playing their respective instrument. In case you wondered that is Kingston handling the lead vocal on the number and she performs commendably. There is a lot of vibrant color in the video as it plays out but the shots are almost always straight on looks at the ladies but since they both are lovely I don’t feel anyone will complain about that. I enjoyed this clip and will be laying some focus on the single as soon as time permits.
