Sarah Howells’ Bryde have announced the release of the debut album, ‘Like An Island’, and shared the brand new lead single, ‘To Be Brave’. The new track fills us with anticipation for the release of a record expected for April 13th, that will mark a big step for a brilliant artist I started to follow over a year ago.
“‘To Be Brave’ was written as kind of a soft squeeze of the hand to many friends who have, like me, been through many a dark period and put on a brave face and just got on with it. – says Sarah about the track – It’s a comment about how we all live out certain episodes of our lives in such a public setting these days that I feel we almost edit them to appear flawless, nothing but smiles.”
Described as a record of catharsis which gives a voice to bad times and exorcises old demons – in Bryde’s words an album that “sets a girl free” – ‘Like An Island’ is one of the most awaited releases this Spring. Bryde will present her full-length on the biggest headline tour to date, with a gig at London’s Omeara on May 1st.
