Half Awake is a song that deals with insecurities, and how our flaws are perceived by those around us. It is a mesmerising track combining minimalist electro and indie akin to James Blake and RY X.
After a period in relative solitude traveling around Europe, Adam Cleaver adopted the new alias DYVE and working on a series of new tracks. Upon his return he teamed up with producer Matt Harris (HAWK, Maria Kelly) to refine this new sound.
Between Adam and his collaborators they have 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.
The single is a captivating debut that elevates Cleaver’s vocals to new heights, his voice weaving between layers of guitar fused electronica.
Half Awake by DYVE is out on 20th January 2017 via Veta Records.
