London-based futuristic soul singer Amy Steele has just dropped an emotional cover of Jacob Banks classic Slow Up. Throughout lockdown, Amy has chosen to record covers of songs that move her, and which she feels hold important messages for us this year.
Slow Up is a track to remind us to stay positive and not to let the perception of the world change us or harden us with its prejudice. We’ve had a difficult year of social injustice and seen the way the world can corrupt innocence, but Slow Up is a reminder to stay strong and true to who we are.
Amy makes Slow Up her own, offering a beautifully mournful and emotional interpretation of the well-known classic.
