Iwan Gronow moved to Manchester from Cornwall 18 years ago with his band Haven. Managed by the late great Joe Moss and produced by Johnny Marr, Haven signed to Radiate a subsidiary of Virgin in 2000. Their debut album “Between the Senses” charted in the top 20. The album included the hits “Say Something” and “Til the End”, with the band appearing on Top of the Pops.
A member of Johnny Marr’s band since 2013, Iwan has toured the world and played many festivals including Glastonbury, Coachella and Fuji Rock; also appearing on programs such as Later with Jools Holland and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
In 2018, Iwan began writing, recording and producing music under his own name. His debut single, ‘In the Mire’, was released in September 2019. The video for Iwan’s second single, ‘Second Guess’, was filmed by Matthew Boone from Scruff of The Neck and will be released a week after the single release.
When asked what Iran felt his newest single, ‘Second Guess’, meant and he was expressing with it, he had this to say:
“We live in a world controlled by content, media and data. It seems we never truly know the truth and are always second-guessing ourselves. Sometimes we second guess for too long, ‘we second-guessed a second long’ which leads to a ‘breathless feeling’ then, in turn, a ‘restless being before long’. It’s about paranoia and feeling unsettled. I wanted this track to be more modern and have more synths to represent the lyrical content. I also wanted it to slow down and pick up in the way our minds do ‘all your ducks in line’ ‘all the jumps in mind’ little things our minds do to try and get things in order and to feel grounded and settled. I suppose it’s something I do personally as well.” – Iwan Gronow
