Spine tingling stuff now from SYML, the project of Seattle native Brian Fennell (also a founding member of Barcelona).
SYML means ‘simple’ in Welsh, but ‘Where’s My Love’ is anything but.
Written with cinematic use in mind, SYML likes to weave together bare piano, minimalist synth, string-scapes and soaring vocal melodies into a textured, emotive soundtrack, evoking movement and visual imagery with sound.
SYML’s new EP ‘Hurt For Me’ is out on 9 September.
Sounds like: Phoria, Radiohead, Nordic Giants
