Sam Smith – "Latch" (Acoustic Live) [Video]


It's hard to believe that it has been seven months since "Latch" launched the careers of both Disclosure and Sam Smith. In a short timespan, "Latch" has surfaced everywhere from department stores to international clubs in a countless number of formats. While nearly every remix we have been exposed to has been built around the Disclosure instrumentals, Sam Smith's vocal range has yet to be fully exposed. This most likely has to do with the hype surrounding the London brother duo, but Smith uses a live rendition of the song to prove that his emotion-filled voice played a big part in drawing such a warm reception to "Latch" in the first place.

Throughout the performance Smith's vocals flourish in taking the spotlight over repeating piano chords and soft orchestral strings. Surprisingly, Smith is able to give off a personal feeling throughout that is usually only experienced from being present at a live show.

  • I've been latched onto Sam Smith, that is for sure! LOVE this man! Goodness he is so gifted and talented. Sometimes he seems a tad bit nervous when he performs which only add's to watching him perform because it is so genuine. Not afraid to show some vulnerability. That's so authentic. He never fakes it. It add's to a tenderness and sweetness about him. That's VERY likable!
    And if I hear one more comment about him being gay I'm gonna rip my skin off with needlenose pliers. Who give a shit if he is or isn't. God. What in the worldddddd does that have to do with anything? So silly, I swear. Chicks like me LOVE the Sam Smiths of the world! Love you Sam!
    I wish you nothing but the best success! Hugs* from Brooklyn.
