SfvenThe Lexington, N1 9JB , [Venue Details]
Sfven is a unique and compelling artist. His music communicates intimacy and insecurity with an ambitious and wide-reaching multi-layered sound, whilst his visual identity and onstage persona reflect a laid-back character with hidden depths.
Whilst spending most of his years in Leeds collaborating with friends from college, Sfven signed to 3 Beat Records and set out writing his debut album from the Scottish Highlands last year.
With a charity-shop nylon-string guitar, bass, laptop, upright piano and a vintage cassette recorder Sfven created ‘forest ave’; an exquisite coming-of-age record that tells a compelling and beautiful story of falling in love with his best friend during the process.
The glowing collection of songs evokes the soft-rough sonics of To Emma-era Bon Iver, Golden Vessel’s playful electro-pop, and the emotional openness of Adrienne Lenker’s delicate songs LP.
The album found fans at Radio 1 (including a Maida Vale session with Jack Saunders), Notion, Dork and significant playlist and homepage support at Spotify.
