Aderyn‘s new release ‘Yearning’ is so refreshing. It takes you back to the timeless formula of acoustic guitar and lofi vocal; it’s possibly the way that many songs start out behind closed doors and there’s always a temptation to take the end product far away from that. However, the Welsh musician doesn’t do that, instead she retains this raw version and with that she keeps all the genuine feeling and authenticity that is often wiped out by over-production.
That’s not to say, this is a straight forward singer-songwriter moment, ‘Yearning’ is emphasised in certain places by a rattling tambourine or blazing electric guitar or even a full band backing in those more intense places.
Speaking about this lofi creation, Aderyn shares: “I wrote this song on the floor of my childhood bedroom in lockdown. It is a song that encapsulates the feeling of pining for someone. That exquisite, aching pain. It was the first time I’d felt that way about a girl, and this is without a doubt the most vulnerable I’ve ever been in a song. All those feelings were so new, so raw”
Aderyn reminds us of early Lauran Hibberd or Nulifer Yanya and with just a handful of tracks under her belt, we’re excited about the potential to come.
