Following the release of the single ‘Silver Suns (divine)’ in January, BRYDE (aka British guitarist and vocalist Sarah Howells) shares a second single and the title track of her forthcoming third album Still, set for release on 15th July 2022 via Easy Life Records.
Still is an album about the different kinds of love as hinted at in the bracketed song titles. As Sarah explains, “So many love songs glorify the idea of throwing yourself at someone, the drama, and the pain of love. I wanted to own up to doing that but acknowledge that there are many other healthier ways to think about love and then start a conversation about it.”
New single ‘Still (shadow)‘ is one that showcases BRYDE’s ability to weave vulnerability with a deep empathy and understanding of the human condition into her beautifully crafted songs. She describes the single as: “A triumphant piece about shrinking the gap between conscious and subconscious, making friends with your shadow self. The subject of the song; the ‘you’, is both those shadow parts and all the people I love.”
