From Broadcast The Secret Verse
UK acoustic artist Chris Cleverley has been getting amazing attention from big media firms such as The Times, BBC Sounds, and The Telegraph. There’s no doubt as to why he won the FATEA Magazine’s Male Artist of The Year Award for his prominent song writing and stage presence. For the past three years, Chris Cleverley has been gathering his abilities and thoughts to create a huge basket of goodness for us to enjoy. With everyone eager to hear the new material, bringing elements of lo-fi folk, IDM, Dream pop, and Ambient to his ever-growing repertoire of expression, we take a track from his new album released earlier this month. Broadcast The Secret Verse was produced by John Patrick Elliott from Reveal Records and The Little Unsaid. Paradise fits somewhere snugly in the middle.
A wholesome acoustic guitar, bass, and drum progression bounces into a verse as Chris Cleverley opens. His synonymous voice flows over the music in meandering volleys of tune. Bursts of musical pressure then rise in firework like explosions of intensity. Another verse materialises from the mists, electronic effects give Chris Cleverley’s voice a twinge of the dream before another wave of emotion rises to bring the thrust of music back to its peak. A progressive section of lyrics then begins, it climbs in melodic introspection as the inner velocity gives buoyancy and lift to the passion within.
