SYML Shares New Single ‘Stay Close’

SYML, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter and producer Brian Fennell, has just shared his brand new single Stay Close, taken from his upcoming EP DIM, set to arrive on March 5th via Nettwerk Records.

I am loving his lush, smooth vocals and how they instantly convey the emotion of his storytelling of a powerful love. Stay Close is quite a personal song for SYMLas it is inspired by his father who has been slowly dying of pancreatic cancer for almost two years. It's a song that deals with the varied emotions contained within the process of grief. You can truly feel the emotions pouring from his vocal delivery which are enhanced by the warm production packed with lush, memorable melodies.

Accompanying the release is a stunning music video, directed by Keith Rivers, which captures SYML at his most vulnerable, singing alone as he experiences the several emotions of the grieving process. Check it out below!


Speaking about the song, SYML said,

This is a personal song. My father has been slowly dying of pancreatic cancer for almost two years. It’s certainly about grief, but it’s also about a love so deep, it runs from our first breath until our last. It covers every experience we’ll ever have, and it goes beyond us when we leave this place. It’s almost supernatural but I know it to be real because I can sense it fully.
