#songoftheday = KAT CUNNING: “WILD POPPIES”

As an actress, Kat Cunning has already appeared in Dangerous Liaisons, Cirque Du Soleil’s Paramour and Sleep No More.  You might call her a future star of the NYC arts scene.  But, in my eyes, she’s already a star.  I felt like I was witnessing one blossom as I watched her video for “Wild Poppies” the first time.  How can you not?  Even if you watched it with the volume on mute, chances are you’d still find her mesmerizing.  And it was choreographed by Kat herself.  Very impressive.  But let’s talk about the song.  It’s just as entrancing as the video, her voice as precious as the flowers in her hair.  “We’re wild poppies,” she sings and it’s the audio equivalent of being swept off your feet by a fluffy white cloud, her voice soothing and ethereal.   You’d need a heart of stone not to be moved by it.  As for the music, she’s blended pop, soul and Baroque with splendid results.  The mix of drums, piano and everything else along with subtle electronic elements is wonderful.  Everything about it is.
