Sivu has premiered the video for ‘Kin & Chrome’, the next single from his critically acclaimed second album, ‘Sweet Sweet Silent’. James has also confirmed details of an intimate headline London show at King’s Place (with accompaniment from The Mangan String Quartet) for February 15th 2018, which is on sale today. With additional support across Radio 1, 6Music, Radio X, Spotify and Apple Music, Sivu’s ‘This Unfruitful Love’ EP – containing ‘Kin & Chrome’, all-new material and exclusive reworks from across the album – will be unveiled across the coming months and see a release on February 16th.
‘Kin & Chrome’ is the starkest and perhaps most achingly direct moment of Sivu’s career to date, using little more than raw guitar, lilting piano and strings to build to its quietly affecting crescendo. “To me,” James (Sivu) 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.”
