Single review: DYVR ‘Shameful’

Share Button

Once again, ethereal electronic artist DYVR has knocked it out of the park with his latest cut. Not only does ‘Shameful’ tackle an important subject that needs recognition, but musically it’s also perhaps DYVR’s most sophisticated yet. DYVR’s ‘Shameful’ is out now via Veta Records.

DYVR battles gender stereotypes on ‘Shameful’, very much a hot topic and most certainly an important one. In a world where there is already a lot of change and forward-thinking happening (but not enough), we really need artists like DYVR to be pushing these boundaries and starting conversations. ‘Shameful’ looks at male masculinity and DYVR’s own personal battle with what that means. He elaborates ” I have been a person who allowed gender norms to affect the relationships I had around me. There were many points that I felt adrift and I still feel like I’m learning to be honest with myself about my sexuality and how my negative view of being male has led to behaviours that are damaging”. The dark, haunting subject matter is matched perfectly by the song’s musicality. DYVR’s signature falsetto is out in full-force as it soars wonderfully over eerie synths and intimate guitar strums. This guy never ceases to amaze.
