Last month Brian Fennell, also known as SYML, released his long awaited selftitled debut album. This weekend the video for Girl was premiered on Paste Magazine, who interviewed Brian on the single. SYML is performing Rock Werchter, Hedon Zwolle and Doornroosje Nijmegen next week.
Girl is a song Fennell wrote for his daughter, Josie, who was diagnosed with a disorder that restricted the development of her brain. "She will not remember it, she’s too little, so I wrote this song with two purposes,” he says. “One was therapeutic in a way for me and my family as we went through this and the other was to serve as a bit of a letter to her for her to have when she grows up to better understand what she went through and to know that this is an important part of who she is and how much of a badass she is for enduring it.
"There are people young and old who will go through life-changing experiences. Some painful, some not, some big, some small, and it almost seems supernatural that we as humans are capable of going through that. On the other hand it seems totally natural, we put our heads down and we do it, it’s just the wildest thing. One of my favorite lines in the song is, ‘Sometimes our bodies will hurt for some time and the beauty in that can be hard to find but I want you to find it.’ That is so hard to say and to believe, but I do believe it.”
