New Music: SYML – The War

SYML is an American singer songwriter who has already built quite the following thanks to his own brand of ethereal acoustic folk. His latest, a live performance of his track The War, is the first single from a performance recorded at St. Marks Church in Seattle.

The space really suits SYML’s sound. His smooth, emotive vocals echo. Each piano note lingers. The richness of the sound is immediate. Close your eyes and you’re right there with him as he pours out his heart.

If you haven’t heard SYML before, this version of The War is a great introduction. I highly recommend you also seek out some of his previous music videos which are always spot on. You can hear The War below.
