Exclusive Review: Kowshik Saha – “Love Yourself”

Cover Art of Kowshik Saha’s “Love Yourself” (Cover Song)

We don’t usually review too many cover songs on this platform, but with cases like the multilingual Kowshik Saha, exceptions can definitely be made. Kowshik, who is also amazingly a doctor, is fluent in an array of languages including Hindi, Bengali, and of course English as well. He’s been taking vocal lessons these past 5-6 years, but never put much thought into recording it or putting much of it out to the world. Luckily, he has had a change of heart since then and has currently blessed many ear waves with his current rendition of Justin Bieber’s smash hit “Love Yourself”.

While the song itself needs no introduction, Kowshik‘s version absolutely does and reimagines the song in a way that changes it, but still manages to leave the song’s prominent charm intact. First off, the bold and precise guitar work is amazingly performed and executed with full, thick chords that lay down a solid foundation for the rest of the song. Once Kowshik‘s voice kicks in, you can hear the immediate brilliance of this cover along with his insatiable talent as both a vocalist and performer. Another great quality is his ability to be precise but still allow room to explore different dynamics this song offers; whether it be through additional chord structures or vocal techniques.

Either way, whether you’re a Bieber fan or not, you can’t deny just how well executed this cover is. Kowshik‘s mid-range voice is soothing, the track’s recording quality is ambitious but also expresses a more indie performance value, and the charm of this cover easily matches Bieber’s chart-topping original. So even though Kowshik may have been a little studio shy in the past, we at Artist Reach absolutely recommend that he continues down this on-record path with more tunes. And even though he deems himself more as a cover artist, we would highly anticipate to hear what kind of original music he could conjure as well. Kowshik‘s version of “Love Yourself” is available now on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and several other digital music streaming platforms. You absolutely need to hear this one.
