"...rhythmic electronics and lush
soundscapes..." - dork
Brooding electronic artist DYVR makes his 2018 debut with his latest single Ghost Hands, out now on via Veta Records.
The single once again highlights DVYR’s ability to create haunting electronic soundscapes that compliment his heartstirring vocals beautifully. DYVR’s signature falsetto soars effortlessly over the rich seams of emotional electronica to create something akin to that of James Blake and SOHN.
Talking about the track, DYVR explains “Ghost Hands is one of a handful of songs that I wrote last year about how memories can play tricks on us. Over time I’ve come to understand that memories are partly factual but mostly made up from other moments in time. I really like this idea that memories can become abstract, I think there is something vital there. People with mental illnesses are often treated in a way that helps them to re-imagine moments in their past in a healthy way and I think there is a lot of power in that. If we can re-interpret the important moments in our past, it gives us agency over who we are now. We're living in quite confusing times and I think we could all benefit from knowing ourselves a bit better."
DYVR, together with producer Matt Harris (HAWK, Maria Kelly), has received praise from an array of well-regarded publications including The Line of Best Fit, Noisey, The 405, Consequence of Sound and Stereogum as well as BBC 6Music’s Lauren Laverne to name but a few.
Ghost Hands is out now via Veta Records.
