Bryony Williams – Silhouette (Review)

BRYONYFirst release since her Conscious EP, Bryony Williams is back with what may be her most ambitious track yet. ‘Silhouette’ has had support from Tom Robinson on Radio 6 and well deserved too. Bathed in dream pop, the new single is out today. Bringing you up to speed, Bryony is a young singer songwriter from Wolverhampton and has already got two EP’s under her sleeve. A founder of female music collective ‘GRRRL GROANNN!!!”, it’s fair to say that Bryony is always busy. Drawing influence from artists such as Radiohead, Marika Hackman and Cocteau Twins, it’s no wonder Bryony’s aura is floating in the clouds. Highlighted as one of the ’25 to watch in Midlands’ this year, it’s no surprise really. 

Lyrically, the track is in a bad frame of mind. Heartbroken and aching from the desperation of love, it’s shoegaze effect feels like a hazy dream. Mainly about looking at the past and how it can haunt you by comparing others, Bryony’s adaptation of this feeling fits perfectly in an anxious mind like myself. Big production that fits a simplistic track. Elements of indie pop circulate the atmosphere while dream pop is still the most prominent of genres. If you like reverb and angelic vocals, you’ll love this track.

Score: 4/5
