I heard 'Better Man Than He' for the first time a few days ago on John Kennedy's Xposure show, and was immediately taken aback by its its catchy melodic hook and refreshingly honest lyrics. After a bit of searching, I discovered it was the work of Icelandic born singer-songwriter Sivu. What followed has been several days of listening to the below track on an almost continuous loop. Though he doesn't have much of an online presence as yet I don't appear to have been the only one to have been affected by his music, with the track gaining play with DJ's on Radio 1 and 2.
The single will be officially released on February 25th with an EP to follow in May. In the meantime, just sit back and enjoy three minutes and nineteen seconds of gorgeous indie-pop.
