top tracks from tempest
Two years after releasing her second studio album, Gone (2016), Toronto-based artist Bryn embodies her own artistic evolution with her 2018 release, Tempest.
Elegant and lyrically vindictive, Bryn walks the line between power and personability as she navigates the ups and downs of finding self-empowerment. The result is a dark alt-pop exploration of anticipation, anger, love, and lust.
The opening single and first track on the album sets the tone with Bryn’s sultry alto vocals supported by the eclectic production rife with mesmerizing delay patterns and varying dynamics.
“I loved writing this song because it was so different for me and I knew right away how I wanted it to sound,” says Bryn of the single, “The real magic was being able to make that vision come to life.”
“Honey’s” lyrical minimalism perfectly captures the maturity and overall direction of both Tempest and Bryn’s career as an artist.
With a sound that is compared to and heavily influenced by strong female artists such as Lorde and Banks, Tempest explores the darker realm of Bryn’s creative spectrum.
