SYML unveils new single 'Flags'

Following on from the glorious success of his stunning self-titled debut album last year, SYML has now returned to deliver a heartfelt and intimate new release.

The new single 'Flags' sees the Seattle-based artist battle with the feelings and emotions that arose seeing his loved ones go through the stages of cancer. His new release looks to pay tribute to those that have suffered in his life, but also delivers a powerful message for others that have been affected.

Speaking about his latest offering, he said, "I struggle with things that seem supernatural but are actually very natural. Cancer is one of those natural things. Nature is undiscerning and unforgiving. Cancer is raw and shapes the landscape of our lives. The metaphors run deep but they don’t make mourning someone any less painful, especially before they leave us. I wrote ‘Flags,’ like I write many of my songs, as a form of therapy to deal with people in my life who have battled cancer. The song is from the perspective of the body experiencing cancer. We meet pain and hopelessness with community and fight, and the fight is meaningful. Cancer fucking sucks and life is beautiful.”"
