Sam Feldt‘s new collaboration with American musician SYML arrives just in time for summer, and it’s a real stunner. It’s a new version of ‘Where’s My Love,’ a track by SYML that Feldt fell in love with a while back.
Feldt‘s simple arrangement really lets the beauty of SYML‘s voice shine through. The acoustic guitar twinkles over cool synth bass and chugging, uncluttered house beats before he unleashes one of his sweetest, most melancholic riffs to date. Just as you think the track can’t take you any higher, SYML‘s soaring delivery takes it into the stratosphere begging “did you run away?”
SYML, which means simple in Welsh, is the creation of Seattle musician Brian Fennell. The name is a nod to his complex feelings about being adopted and not knowing his lineage other than the fact he has Welsh roots. Breakout single, ‘Where’s My Love,’ continues to climb at radio and streaming and is Gold certified in Canada and Belgium. A world tour is planned for the fall.
