BRYDE – SINGLE REVIEW

Bryde – Less 
Bryde - Less


Release Date: Out Now

As a boy growing up in the 90s and finding my bearings through music, I placed the likes of Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Tanya Donnelly, Kim Deal and Miki Berenyi high on a pedestal for the minds and their music which served me well. So, imagine my delight and surprise when London based Bryde comes along with a tune that would fit in so easily among these leading ladies. New single ‘Less’ is dripping in 90s vibes from the word go as a rumbling bass and jangled guitar are urged along by a stumbling beats before Bryde’s breathy, almost bored vocal comes in with all the ambivalent edge of Smashing Pumpkins before kicking in to the kind of chorus that Alanis would have loved to throw in on Jagged Little Pill. In more recent years, the likes of Anna Calvi would be an easy comparison but for me the likes of Tori Amos, Powderstrip and 12 Rounds are all there in the background of this storming, driving and utterly irresistible tune.



Live Dates:

19th April – Camden Assembly, London
22nd April – Phoenix, Exeter
24th April – The Castle, Manchester
26th April – Studio 2, Liverpool
11th May – FOCUS Wales, Wrexham
