This luscious ballad begins with Katy B singing softly over melancholic piano notes. “I still see your face like it was only yesterday,” she sings, her voice full of longing. Once it arrives at the chorus, a sticky electro-beat beat begins throbbing away accompanied rhythmic live percussion and humming synth. “Still, still on my mind now, still / You still know how to make me feel / How come these wounds won’t heal?” goes the perfectly emotive chorus. Beyond the chorus, there are even more details — mostly electro-flourishes — added to the beautiful picture. “Why do you need to sooth your soul?” Katy asks during the post chorus verse, trying to wrap her head around around a bloke who is, well, still on her mind. “You’re still on my mind now, still,” it ends on a blissful note.
Not only is it a lovely and highly relatable song for anyone who still can’t get an ex out of their heads, it’s also a bit of a departure for Katy, whose music usually has dubstep inflections to one degree or another. While we love all of her music, this vision of what Katy can do without those dubby trimmings is wonderful and has us eagerly awaiting her eventual third album already.
