SYML premieres a gorgeous, devastatingly melancholic video for the track, “Fear of the Water.” A visual convergence of stark, arresting industrial and natural landscapes, the dancers within this world captivate via jolts of movement as though they are tethered and love (or perhaps more apt, longing) is tugging at their strings. “The main rhythm throughout this song is based around a simple but familiar beat found in latin and afro-cuban music,” says Brian Fennell (aka SYML). “It invokes movement. Acting this movement out on a piano is one thing, but to see it physically communicated through a human body is another. This song is pretty, but it’s also a bit nervous and terrified at its core. The dancers welcomed this and interpreted it perfectly without being told how to move. A lot of the footage is taken from “one-take” performances where they would let their bodies flow through the whole song, front to back, instead of taking it scene by scene. The result is more moving than I could have ever hoped.”
