LISTEN: Christof van der Ven - 'A Darker Light'

Currently in the midst of a US tour as a member of Bear's Den, Holland born Christof van der Ven has just released the second track form his upcoming second album You Were The Place, due for release 6th September via Planet Zog Records. If his debut album and recent EP Beneath The Ordinary Load are anything to go by it's going to be something rather special.

Written and recorded over the three month period following the end of a brief and intense fling, the track is a melancholic reaction to the situation. Christof explains that it is "about a conversation that I had late at night with my mum after some wine. I was looking for an answer, a way out of the emotional mess I was in. She offered her wisdom and helped me get over that mental hurdle."

You can catch Christof at The Hope & Ruin in Brighton (7th October) and The Lexington in London (8th).
