Fascinated with human psychology and inner workings of relationships Bryde's songs still hold close a defiant and life-affirming quality. Described as being about "entangling and unravelling" it moves from tender and delicate, to tough and unforgiving, drawing reviews that reflect this.
Bryde established her ethereal indie-rock sound early on, working with producers such as Jolyon Thomas ( Royal Blood) and Bill Ryder-Jones (Hooton Tennis Club, Our Girl) Radio support has reflected this coming from the likes of Huw Stephens on Radio 1, 6music, playlists on BBC Radio Wales and Amazing Radio and supported by Maz Tappuni on Radio X.
Now in 2018 the debut album Like an Island mixed by Catherine J Marks (Big Moon, The Amazons) has been released to a host of glowing reviews, citing comparisons to Radiohead, The xx, Warpaint and Jeff Buckley. The album reached No. 38 in the Official Indie Chart. Accompanied by another sold out London show (this time at Omeara) and a 35 headline tour of Europe followed by a long list of summer festivals and support shows with Joy Formidable, Bryde is on a roll and appears to have no intention of slowing down.
