Shivum Sharma – Flicker

Exclusive: Kwes produces a lingering track for London's new soul hero

Artists such as KwesSampha and Deptford Goth are knocking modern British soul into new shapes, and now there's a new member of the pack. High-registered London singer Shivum Sharma is signed to National Anthem, the label that launched Brolin and Haim, and now he shares the video to his deft, minimal debut single "Flicker". It's a spacious, moody track that's given fine accompaniment by this misty video directed by Annick Wolfers, who also created the shadowplay for fellow UK soul artist Lulu James' "Sweetest Thing". Sometimes it feels good to keep it in the family.
