Today, our new music spotlight is on Tiiva

Location: London

About: Tiiva is a producer and artist who writes honest and expansive pop, telling their own and others’ stories- songs that are equally heartbreaking as they are euphoric. Sampling and curating their own sound of woozy synths, growling bass lines and intimate vocals, the writing of this album was a cathartic journey of discovery, that unfolded into their own unique world. Hear the electronic elements of James Blake, with the emotive potency of FKA Twigs, Tiiva’s music paints a fresh picture of darker edges of the human psyche. Before the release of their own music, Tiiva has been remixing artists who capture their imagination- playfully chopped vocals, distinct drum patterns and Juno bass lines make up the fresh sound of this London based producer.

What Hidden Herd say: ‘Make Me Pure’ starts with an ethereal quality, with Tiiva’s tender vocals offering a guiding heartsong atop increasingly-layered, glitch-prone instrumentals. The result is a song that does well to both invoke intrigue and calm the listener into a gentle, dreamy haze.

For fans of: James Blake, FKA Twigs
