SYML’s new single, “Howling”, which precedes his upcoming album The Day My Father Died is a gorgeous symphony of angelic harmonies, pulsating percussion, and soaring guitars. The track’s slow, considered pace lulls listeners at first – eventually building up into a crescendo that embodies the unifying force of a gospel choir. The Day My Father Died is SYML’s sophomore album, which follows his eponymous debut released in 2019. Although ‘SYML’ is artist Brian Fennell’s solo venture – branching off from the indie band Barcelona – this new album is bursting with collaboration. With contributions from artists like Sarah Watkins, and Charlotte Lawrence – the LP’s sound was crafted by producer Phil Ek, who has also flexed his talents for indie giants like Band Of Horses, and Father John Misty.

In the live visuals for “Howling,” SYML is joined by the Brooklyn-based band Lucius in St Paul’s Church in Seattle. The grand space is littered with candles, creating high contrast lighting; it’s shot in black and white – which brings out the track’s hazy quality. The song and music video in tandem provide a captivating experience for the audience, and this first taste of SYML’s upcoming album has left us wanting more. With the Seattle-based artist garnering over 9 million Spotify listeners a month – we’re clearly not alone in this. And, with a European tour titled ‘Phases’ on the horizon where the artist will blaze through Manchester, London, Paris, and Barcelona (to name a few) – this new video release is merely fuel to the already blazing fire.
