Circuit ft. Sfven & More TBA
18th March 2023 - 7:30 pm
All ages (U18s must be accompanied by an adult)

Independent proudly presents Circuit, Sunderland’s freshest gig night introducing the best new bands with talents from across the UK and the world alongside some of the most exciting acts from the North East region.

Sfven is a unique and compelling artist. His music communicates intimacy and insecurity with an ambitious and wide-reaching multi-layered sound, whilst his visual identity and onstage persona reflect an affable and laid-back character with hidden depths and a love of the unsophisticated and raw.

Whilst spending most of his years in Leeds collaborating with friends from college, Sfven signed to 3 Beat Records and set out writing his debut album from the Scottish Highlands last year. With a charity-shop nylon-string guitar, bass, laptop, upright piano and a vintage cassette recorder Sfven created ‘forest ave’; an exquisite coming-of-age record that tells a compelling and beautiful story of falling in love with his best friend during the process. The glowing collection of songs evokes the soft-rough sonics of To Emma-era Bon Iver, Golden Vessel’s playful electro-pop, and the emotional openness of Adrienne Lenker’s delicate songs LP.
