Buzzing 18-year-old LA songstress Doja Cat has unveiled a video for the “Unplugged” version of breakthrough Spring release, “So High.” With her new dialed-down version, the modern, blog-friendly R&B/pop gloss of the original has been eschewed in favor of a more soulful sound that wouldn’t be out of place at smoky lounge’s jazz night. It’s a different side to the singer, but one that surely shows some versatility and an evolving creative profile.
“So High” was a song that I ended up sometimes playing acoustically during live performances… I really dug hearing how the melody could be highlighted and we decided why not get a live acoustic version on film. I felt very lucky that the Chargaux girls were in Los Angeles to lay it down. We did one take for the audio, which kept it raw, and stayed true to the natural energy we intended to capture. “
