Turn It Up: Kate Bush - Snowflake
All I really know about Kate Bush is that she's from Bexleyheath, Kent, England, she's inspired the likes of Tori Amos and Charlotte Martin and her music is incredible (and really that's all I need to know).
Her new EP "50 Words For Snow" is no exception, all of the songs are dark and deeply haunting (perfect for the holiday season lol), and feature collaborations with the likes of Elton John, Stephen Fry and others. The song Snowflake is the first track (of seven) and features Kate's son Albert (or Bertie) on additional vocals.
The song is described as " a song expressing the hope of a noisy world soon being hushed by snowfall." Good enough description.
There's no music video for this song so I'm just adding this fan made video that I found, which at one point has the scene from Edward Scissorhands where Winona Ryder is dancing in the snow, in the background, and...well...we already know how much I love her.
