Last week, we saw the release of singer-songwriter and producer Dhruv’s lead single of his debut album “Tragedy”.
Co-written by himself and JT Daly, the track features a sombre piano underneath Dhruv’s eloquent performance, as he tells the story of being on the losing end of a breakup.
Dhruv has been featured in NME, with them stating he’s an artist that’s creating vital anthemic pop and there is no change here. With catchy drums, coupled with the previously mentioned sombre piano, Tragedy produces a captivating sound that we can’t get enough of.
To help visualise the emotions Dhruv is portraying, a music video was directed and filmed by AboveGround, inside of London. The video features the artist looking for answers to help ease the pain of said tragedy but instead only finds more of it.
“Writing ‘Tragedy’ was the first time I made something that I feel has my stamp on it,” Dhruv says. “It was the first song we finished for my album, and it became a natural entry point into the world of my upcoming record. ‘Tragedy’ feels like it could be a blueprint for things that I'm going to make in the future.”
