Daily Discovery #83: Bryde
There’s something about BRYDE that makes you position her on a pedestal when you hear her combination of vocals and electric guitar. It’s emotional, grainy and impressively addictive.

The matching of harsh guitar and raw vocals is what is so appealing about Bryde’s sound – and her latest release satisfies this to a new level. We get the quiet, thin spaces where a single electric guitar is governed by the magnetising voice of Bryde. Equally, the track then has moments of build where the guitar takes over your headphones and you forget how and why you were so content with the quieter parts.
Bryde is a welsh singer/songwriter now living in London. Speaking to Consequence of Sound where Wouldn’t That Make You Feel Good premiered, she said the track isn’t actually about her own life:
“The lyrics just became something I wrote with other people’s experience in mind. Like actors in a play. It’s about retrospect.” – Bryde
This track sees Bryde move a little darker and more haunting then her previous release last month Honey:
