Needle Drop: DYVR, “Viridian”

Previously our Artist of the Week, London-based artist DYVR is back with another hauntingly captivating new single. “Viridian” is a spectacular piece of emotional electronica that deserves your attention.

Singer Adam Cleaver’s powerful falsetto grabs you immediately, and mixed with dissonant synths, subtle guitar, and repetitive drum beats, “Viridian” is a true musical delight. The song’s dark nature reflects upon the difficult subject matter of depression, rendering the track even more poignant and profound. Cleaver explains, “Emotional landscapes can feel impossible to navigate.”

“One of the most difficult things is finding the right way to speak about the issue, or whether to say anything at all. If there is a negative outcome, there is always a feeling that maybe you could have done more.”

Fans of SOHN and James Blake will certainly hear similarities, but there is something extra special in DYVR. Cleaver’s vocal definitely steals the show and the combination of producer Matt Harris (Hawk, Maria Kelly) and the soaring musicianship takes “Viridian” to the next level.

“Viridian” is in stores now via Veta Records.
