Seattle artist SYML is a known purveyor of emotive, textured and moving songwriting and he’s back at his game once more with stunning new single ‘WDWGILY’, premiering today on Music Feeds.
Reminiscent of James Blake and Bon Iver’s brand of melancholic, downtempo electronica, ‘WDWGILY’ (aka ‘Where Did We Go, I Love You’) pares minimalist synths, sparse keys and graceful, soul-filled vocals.
The man behind the project, Brian Fennell, is also a founding member of the band Barcelona, but has chosen to pursue his solo endeavours under the moniker SYML – a name that in Welsh translates to simple.
“The name meaning simple was the cornerstone of what I wanted in these songs,” he explains. “Keep it simple because you can’t hide behind things as well when it is stripped back and when it is naked and raw.”
