Prior to lockdown, UK-based Garvie had spent years writing for other artists and cutting his teeth on the London live scene. With the music world on hiatus, he began learning how to produce his own songs, and the result is a sound that is immediately captivating.
New single ‘Villian’ has a production taking the swagger of AM-era Arctic Monkeys and the soul of Jack Garratt, and blends them in with Garvie’s pop sensibilities. On the single, he says:
“We’re always told we shouldn’t get angry. I think anger gets a bad rep – it can push you forward and motivate you more than a lot of other feelings. Whether it’s a celebrity, politician, an annoying co-worker or your ex – we’ve all got our villains. Sometimes it’s OK to embrace that.”
