Artist of The Week


A final plea. An act of desperation. A story of frustration and despair after discovering your partner’s infidelity.Melbourne-based dance-pop artist Kevin Silvester returns with a new heart-wrenching single ‘Be The One’.

Stream ‘Be The One’ Here :

The fourth single from Silvester’s upcoming debut album “Sleepwalker” is a collaboration with fellow
Melbourne-based Pop and R&B singer/songwriter JVCQUI. The song is accompanied by a laceratingly
emotional music video that tells the story of a toxic relationship through dramatic neon-metropolitan

This song integrates multiple genres to express the core emotions of hatred and longing. Silvester
enchants and lures you into a forest of melodies, only to cast you into an electric confrontation of vocals matched with a punchy bass line and a triplet-swing drum beat.

The ethereal vocal performance by JVCQUI displays her longing and highlights the back and forth between Silvester and herself, painting the picture of a couple fighting, leaving listeners with empathy for JVCQUI as she pleads for validation.

In July 2021, the song was born from a conversation between the two: they became friends after chatting about kinks at a local RSL. Written right before Melbourne’s lockdown, the finishing touches were completed over a phone call. Listeners are treated to an explosive chorus of gang vocals by the pair imitating signature celebrity voices – Britney Spears, Olivia Rodrigo and Momo from TWICE.
