SYML - Where's My Love
Translated as “simple” in Welsh, SYML is the creation of Brian Fennell, a Seattle-native and founding member of the indie-rock band Barcelona. With a keen grasp on textural and emotive songwriting, Fennell combines piano, minimalist synth and string-scapes with ethereal vocals to take the listener on a journey through the senses
'Where’s My Love’ is an expertly crafted song featuring sparse productions and intimate songwriting. It’s all underpinned by Fennell’s powerful, yet delicate vocals that drift in on exposed raw pleas of longing to reconnect with a loved one.
The video for the track is simple and effective. It follows the story of one girl who is struggling with everyday life.
Fennel explains about the video :“I met the videographer (Gavin Michael Booth), when I was working on a project in the Cayman Islands. After a few nights of unusually lite beer, we got to talk about our respective projects. He told me about a treatment he’d been wanting to use for a while and I instantly knew it would fit perfectly with Where’s My Love. I think the video turned out beautifully simple and incredibly sad, which is perfect for the song.”
