Shot in his home town of Flint by Andy Willsher, the video for Diives’ uplifting breakup-tune ‘Who Knew’, it’s the ideal choice for this engagingly real anthemic indie pop gem.
The Welsh soulful and talented “street lad” explains: “I was going through a break-up at the same time as a good friend of mine. We were calling up our mates to come for a drink with us, but they were all on their way to a big party out of town, we couldn’t go as we were both broke. So we scraped what money we did have together and drowned our sorrows. The next morning, I woke up and wrote Who Knew – The song deals with that initial anger that you feel for the person you have broken up with, although you might not mean everything you say, while it’s still fresh, it’s still sore. The lyrics channel all of that early negative energy”
‘Who Knew’ is out now through AWAL.
