Like the genial embrace from a loved one, “Transparent” completely envelops you within seconds, welcoming you in with open arms in the form of subtle fingerpicking and softly-sung vocals. It’s a familiar feeling. Warm and inviting, it’s seemingly the perfect thing to fill whatever void you’re experiencing.

Or, at least, that’s what I experienced while listening to this single from London-based Bryde. Don’t worry if you don’t find yourself in the same boat, however, I strongly feel that you will. Conversely, other songs on her upcoming debut EP bring forth a myriad of different influences, which subsequently induce other experiential emotions. From blues to indie rock, EP2 is certainly filled with a wide breadth of musical dexterity.

“Transparent,” though, is the one that called out to me. Her voice is both delicate and powerful, casually alternating between bold, projected notes, and gorgeously carried out falsettos. Couple those with the anthemic build-ups created by cinematic instrumentals, and you’ve got quite the listening experience on your hands.
