Welsh songwriter Bryde has dropped her new single ‘Desire’ as she prepares to release her debut album in the new year.
Produced with Chris Sorem and mixed by CJ Marks (Wolf Alice, PJ Harvey and St Vincent), ‘Desire’ is an exploration of the self-deceptions practised on ourselves when we give in to our weaker moments.
The dark and lascivious riffing throughout is performed on an electric baritone guitar (pitched between the standard guitar and a bass).
Of the single, Bryde said: “‘Desire’ is about lust, our need for instant gratification, about desire’s addictive qualities and how they can make us behave.
“I was inspired both by the way people have treated me and how I’ve treated others and how I’ve become unrecognisable to myself in the past just to appeal to this side of someone else’s personality.”
Last year’s anthemic singles ‘Honey’ and ‘Wouldn’t That Make You Feel Good’ carried the empowering sound of every toxic relationship ever being shouldered off.
Bryde’s brutal and direct lyricism and unmistakable vocals has brought her continued support from Huw Stephens and played several busy shows in the US last summer.
The deeply human concerns and unbridled rawness running through Bryde’s output has gained her an ever-growing fanbase. ‘Desire’ is the next chapter in her journey ahead of the debut album slated for spring 2018.
