SYML ‘Where’s My Love’ 21m, streams on Spotify & 5m views on Youtube



Over 21m streams on Spotify & almost 5m views for his heart-wrenching video for ‘WHERE’S MY LOVE’


“It’s a lush, subtle, and graceful piece of songwriting.”Clash

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.

The last year has been busy for Fennell that saw the release of his debut EP ‘Hurt For Me’ which features a song with Jenn Champion (formerly of slowcore heroes Carissa’s Wierd), and signing to Nettwerk (Passenger, The Veils, Angus and Julia Stone) by the end of 2016.

One of the standout tracks from the EP is ‘Where’s My Love’, 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. ‘Where’s My Love’ has impressively managed to clock up 21 million combined Spotify streams alone and gained fans from all over the world.

Fennell explains in more detail how the video came about: “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.”
