CILVR has produced a spectacular sound; one that’s meant to be on the top of the charts.
Many of us know that past experiences influence both songwriting and musical direction. But rarely are these experiences translated so vividly into an artist’s sound.
Meet CILVR — a new Stockholm-based artist whose extraordinary talent has provided us with a hauntingly beautiful debut anthem titled “Hideaway”. Let it be known: she’s going to be huge.
“Hideaway” is the product of CILVR growing up in a home of classical musicians and a childhood filled with backstage concert hall experiences that span across the world. Both of these key elements of her upbringing can be heard in the track.
The echoing music box intro is reminiscent of what an empty concert hall may sound like at the end of the night when everyone has gone home. Her exposure to classical music at a young age is also evident. CILVR’s voice is pure and polished — seemingly the result of hours of practice and dedication.
On the track, CILVR described the writing process of “Hideaway”.
“When we wrote “Hideaway” we wanted to put into words the feeling you get when you’ve just put something behind you, and you’re on your way to discover something new. Not necessarily as in escaping from something, but more as in curiosity about what the future might hold, if that makes sense.”
CILVR’s debut track positions her as a confident artist as she effortlessly switches between fragile indie verses and liberating pop choruses. Based on what we’ve heard on “Hideaway”, CILVR has produced a spectacular sound; one that’s meant to be on the top of the charts.
Just wait and see.
