Leicester's Shivani Day Announces Herself With New Single "Blue Car"

May 24, 2024

Shivani Day is a name that we're going to hear a lot more of in the future. The Leicester-born, London-based singer has dropped an ace video to her new single "Blue Car".

Co-produced by Shivani and 23Sunz, the track is an R&B cut with real gravity. Shivani's vocal cuts through the murky bounce of the instrumental, making for an immersive experience. Channeling her thoughts on self-worth and achieving closure, "Blue Car" is simultaneously relatable and ethereal—an impressive execution for an artist with only two releases to her name.

Speaking on the track, Shivani shares: "I began the process of 'Blue Car' in 2022, and it was initially a freestyle to express a stream of emotions. Working closely with 23Sunz was great, he pushed me to use my voice as an instrument and carve the final sonics in an abstract way. Creating it in the summer, paired with the darkness of the beat and lyrics resulted in a beautiful contrast. It was important to let the track breathe and allow the production to have its moment too."

Shivani is signed to FAMM, Jorja Smith's independent label, so we think the progression of her career is in good hands. Take in the Jay Green-directed video below.
