Approved: Bryde

Bryde

Following a series of EPs, alt-rock singer-songwriter Bryde is set to release her debut album, ‘Like An Island’, this Friday. A steadily increasing drip of singles since the end of last year forms a picture of the quality of songwriting that fills this record.

Tracks like ‘Desire’ and ‘To Be Brave’ show a dynamic range and an ability to use different levels of volume to their own limits of power. Latest single ‘Peace’ puts both to work, with a chorus that tears its way out of the relatively sedate verse.

“‘Peace’ is about the warm glow of two drinks and a real connection with another person”, says Bryde. “It’s about the end of anger and the settling calm after a storm. Being able to be entirely yourself and still be liked”.

As the quote suggests, she has quite a way with words too. You can catch Bryde on tour from tonight at Monroe’s in Galway, before she heads off around Ireland and the UK. She’ll finish up at Omeara in London on 1 May. Listen to ‘Peace’ here:
