Shivum Sharma left a strong first impression with his bedroom demo of “Flicker,” a beautifully arresting debut offering. Now, the 18-year-old Londoner has shared the final version of the song—produced by Kwes, no less—and it doesn’t disappoint. Instead to the sparse, percolating elements present in the demo, this cut is full-bodied perfection, but without taking away from that bittersweet yearning in Shivum’s vocals. Shivum Sharma will be releasing his Flicker EP on March 3.
