We have been a huge supporter of Didirri since he came to our attention back in 2018 with his track ‘Formaldehyde’ and he had built up an impressive resume ever since. After a couple of well received EPs over the intervening time, Didirri has announced the release of his debut album ‘Caught In The Act’ on 4 August through Liberation Records. To whet the appetite, a new single is out entitled ‘You Know What’s Good For You’ – a shimmering track with hints of melancholia and intelligent and poetic lyrics underpinned by lush and velvet instrumentation.

Didirri says of the track:

‘You Know What’s Good For You’ is about internal recognition. When you look inside yourself and ask the question ‘What should I do?’, you usually know the answer deep down. Unfortunately, that answer is usually hard work and doing the right thing. It isn’t necessarily the things you want to hear.

The ballad has touches of George Harrison or John Lennon in delivery, with a dream pop overlay with a touch of a folk/alt country twang. This is a measured and mature sound with an inherent pop sensibility and a yearning theme:

You can’t cure me with conversation
But stay here for a while
I hear the ticking of the ever growing shadow
And I don’t wanna know the time

You know what’s good for you
You know what you should do

The accompanying video directed by Jesse Leaman is a luscious performance piece set on a boat in the early dawn – Didirri cutting an enigmatic figure in the beautiful seascapes.

Written alongside MyRiot members Tim Bran and Roy Kerr (London Grammar, Aurora, Birdy, Sir Paul McCartney), with production from Rob Muinos (Julia Jacklin, Little May, Jess Locke), the single is out today and available to stream and download here.
