Our new single this week comes from Leeds based electro pop artist Sfven.

He’s dropped track like I love u, released on 3B Records this week. On the track, Jamie Clarke said: “like i love u is the most personal and open song I’ve written.”

“I kept the production behind it pretty simple cause I really wanted to feel every lyric and  to be honest it’s still kind of difficult to listen to now, but for me honesty and vulnerability makes for the best music and I hope people find solace in it.”
