Video of the Moment #2357: Sivu

It’s been a few years since we’ve heard from Sivu. The Cambridgeshire singer/songwriter known to his mum as James Page is getting ready to release the follow-up to 2014 debut ‘Something on High’. ‘Sweet Sweet Silent’, produced by Charlie Andrew, will drop mid-summer. A few weeks ago, he released to the wild the first taster track from the upcoming LP, ‘Lonesome’. The single now has its own promo video by Matthew Robins, featuring a little stop-animation dude in a spaceship you can’t help but fall in love with. I mean, really, where else could be lonelier than being in outer space all by yourself, am I right? Except…

The song itself from Sivu is interesting, in that it’s got its moments of fragile beauty reminiscent of ‘Something on High’, but it’s also got surprising moments of levity with “ya ya ya” vocals in the background that swirl around in tandem with the cinematic notes that join the verses. Watch the video for ‘Lonesome’ below. ‘Sweet Sweet Silent’ will be available on the 7th of July on Square Leg Records. To enjoy the rest of our archive here at TGTF on Sivu, follow this link.
