STEPHEN PUTH, “Look Away” (Steve Void remix)
Stephen Puth has definitely followed brother Charlie into the pop music scene on his own terms with three engaging and original singles, particularly “Sexual Vibe” from earlier this year which got to #5 on my personal chart. While “Look Away” is another top-drawer release, it is lifted to new heights to the attention of dance music fans in Steve Void’s insanely catchy official remix. The forlorn vibe of the song, which captures regret after a failed relationship, is countered by some significant bounce alongside of acoustic guitar and a simple set of piano riffs. Stephen’s gentle vocal will win you over too and Steve’s tropical tinges are unexpected but most welcome. It’s a total winner overall!
