Welsh-born, London-based Sarah Howells soars with fiery intent on the Bill Ryder-Jones produced ‘Honey’. Since setting out on her journey as Bryde, Howells has confounded us in her beautifully inescapable world.
With each new song she releases, we acceptingly commit to walking the tightrope of complete emotional breakdown and strident confidence. A dichotomy in which Howells thrives, this balance of control is a vital component in her songwriting and equally to her appeal as an artist. After all, the constant thrill between complete surrender and utter defiance is the ultimate draw.
Upon freeing ‘Honey’ from the clutches of her unreleased works, we find a rousing joust of bravery and fragility soaring through. A becoming for the singer/songwriter that see’s her realise her full potential, aligning her ruthlessly frank torchblazing songs alongside a group of women who seek to make a stand (Anna Calvi, Angel Olsen, Courtney Barnett to name but a few). We sure can’t wait for what comes next.
Bryde’s EP2 will be released via Tipping Point Records on 4th November. Pre-order the exclusive 10″ vinyl, CD or digital copy here.
