Discovery: Sven Ross

Sven Ross is an acoustic singer songwriter based in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. His melancholic, storytelling new single Blue Birthday caught my attention.

By Graeme Smith

Blue Birthday is about ruining the present by focussing too much on the past. It tells the story of a birthday wasted pining over an ex. The nostalgic love turns to hate and frustration and Sven expresses the cocktail of emotions well though his smooth vocals, sung over a simple acoustic guitar melody.

The track is the second single taken from Sven’s debut EP Filled With Gold which is due out this year. Check out Blue Birthday below. If you like your music on the gentle-side, check out our Raw Stuff playlist on Spotify.
