Alt-pop virtuoso The DRIVE is an artist defined by one mission – to present sincere, ‘from the heart’ songwriting in a stunning package that the world can thoroughly enjoy. Influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, The Chainsmokers, Post Malone and Haim, he takes the first bold step with the release of “My Love”, his debut single.
Built on the foundation of swaying guitars and bursting with synths, “My Love” is a contemporary alt-pop number driven by pure emotion. He takes the listener on an emotional journey with spirited crescendos and graceful pitfalls, which beautifully match with the earnest sentiments of the song.
Opening up about his struggles with anxiety and depression, “My Love” is an ode to the special someone in his life who was his ‘escape from reality’ and ultimately brought him out of the emotionally desolate place he was in.
Displaying breath-taking talent with his debut release, it comes as no surprise that it has already begun to cause a serious buzz in the influencer world, with shares and shout outs coming from celebs and Z-list stars including Jordan Davies (Ibiza Weekender), Nathan Henry (Geordie Shore), Adam Collard (Love Island) and many more
There is more to come from our alt-pop maestro. As we move into to the latter half of the year, we are promised more emotionally powerful singles in the pipeline which will, just like “My Love”, tactfully delve into the human condition and speak to the very personal experiences that not only our artist but also many people across the board share. Although a new voice to many, The DRIVE positions himself to be an important voice for all.
