Review: Bryde – ‘Help Yourself’


'Help Yourself' is the perfect follow up to Bryde's debut single.

  • 8

Singer-songwriter Bryde (a.k.a Sarah Howells) is making her mark on the British music scene. Back in December she released her debut single, ‘Wait’ , which gained the Huw Stephens seal of approval on Radio 1. She has now released her latest single ‘Help Yourself’ which echoes Wolf Alice and Daughter, ahead of her debut album EP1.

There is definitely a new, more angsty edge to this track that the singer-songwriter did not explore on her previous single, which is likely to be due to the change in production. ‘Help Yourself’ is produced by Jolyon Thomas, whose notable previous work include Slaves’ Are You Satisfied? and Daughter’s If You LeaveThe power behind Bryde’s vocals in unfaltering throughout this track and in fact grows to a crescendo by the end of the song, which allows her vocal range to come across more clearly. Her lyrics, for example, “it gets bitter in the end, my friend” and “noone else is going to fall for this” evoke ideas of familiar heartbreak.

‘Help Yourself’ is a great follow up to Bryde’s debut single, and it shows that she is one to watch.

‘Help Yourself’ is out now via Seahorse Music.
