TUNE Sfven - Closure
NEW SINGLE ‘CLOSURE’
RELEASED ON 2ND AUGUST
“A refreshing young talent casting his spell on the UK from Leeds, pulling together some notable cross-genre influences whilst layering them with his undeniable British charm” Hidden Herd
Leeds based electro pop artist Sfven has released a new single Closure, which follows recent releases Paranoid and Hard To Say I Love You Sober and is out now via 3Beat Productions.
Sfven, otherwise known as 21-year-old Jamie Clarke, has a unique sound which blends electronic beats with infectious vocal hooks, sweet melodies and meaningful lyrics. As Jamie himself says, he creates “sad stories entwined in happy tunes”.
Beginning his musical journey after accidentally attending an inspiring music production class at university, he takes his name from a hard drive that his songs are stored on and is influenced by the likes of Louis the Child, Bon Iver, Flume and Whethan.
He introduced his sound at the start of summer with the singles Paranoid and Hard To Say I Love You Sober, which was recently played on Jack Saunder’s BBC Radio 1 show as a ‘Next Wave’. There is a theme to Jamie’s songwriting charting familiar everyday highs and lows in both his lyrics and sound and Closure continues that trend.
A song about friendship, regret and change, Closure is an honest and atmospheric track with a strong chorus backed by darkly melodic beats. The single is inspired by real-life events and the accompanying artwork, imagery and forthcoming video have a symbolic meaning. Jamie says;
“Closure came out over the course of a night. It was at a time where I really had no idea where I stood with one of my best friends. The best way for coping with it for me was to get my thoughts down, it’s always easy when you have a meaty topic that you care about. The flower on the artwork is a pressing of that friend’s favourite flower.”
Following a local hometown show, Sfven will be performing at This Must Be The Place festival at Headrow House in Leeds on 25th August.
