Reviewing Dave’s debut album earlier in the year, NME said it was “a moving, quasi-concept album” that was also “bold and thought-provoking, the kind of record that comes along only rarely.”
“Possessing a boldness you only encounter in a handful of albums a year,” NME continued. “The record’s greatest strength is his ability to garner quiet moments of pondering in among the loud and rage of the world.”
Last year, Dave’s song ‘Question Time’ was named best contemporary song at the 2018 Ivor Novello Awards.
He also achieved chart success with the Fredo collaboration ‘Funky Friday’, which hit number one in the UK singles chart in October and made Dave only the second artist to debut a track at number one in the UK (the first being Drake).
