In ‘Meant To Stay Hid’, de eerste single sinds zijn recente albumdebuut, bespreekt SYML persoonlijk verlies. Brian Fennel, zoals SYML echt heet, kwam al vaker naar ons land en staat op 15 oktober in de grote zaal van Paradiso, Amsterdam.
Brian Fennell legt uit: “’Meant To Stay Hid’ is a personal song about loss. It’s that tangible and uncomfortable whole-body feeling that someone is gone. It’s the reality that our memory of them will fade and change. But it’s also the beautiful, yet unreasonable, hope that we will be with them again. For whatever dark reason, I often imagine losing those closest to me. However, I don’t live in constant fear of losing them. Writing about it helps me to love them more deeply while we share this short time together. For me, this song sounds like what it feels like when I hold back tears. It’s almost soothing, but without any actual release.”
