Sivu - Kin and Chrome

When I first heard Sivu's Better Man Than He back in 2013, I knew I was on to something incredibly wonderful. Over the course of his career his sound has continuously evolved with the times yet it's never strayed too far away from his fraught and piercingly honest narratives. Breaking a 2 year silence back in April this year he returned with the fragile and intimate Childhood Home, a track filled with nostalgic nuances, something Sivu's become so accustomed with, creating true realism in his music. Here's no different as his latest single Kin and Chrome delivers an achingly disconsolate sound that draws you in through its simplicity and splendour. "To me," James says, "this song is the closest I could get to a love song. I’m very fortunate to have my partner and she puts up with a lot, so this is a song about being thankful to her". Kin and Chrome is taken from his forthcoming new album ‘Sweet Sweet Silent’, recorded over the past two years between Cambridge, Brixton and very northern Scotland. Take a listen for yourselves below.
