Guided by stories framed by the general idea that we’re just watching the world turn and change, through his histrionic creativity Breon S.Y.N.D.E.L sings of life, love, sex, inebriation and solitude.
His latest project, the two-track EP ‘I Ran Into My Ex on Valentine’s Day … She Was Okay’, is inspired by a common theme in his past relationships. The two songs, ‘Pisces’ and ‘Kill Me Now’ stand in opposition, not only in the content and approaches to mixing, but also to the chronological order of the events that create the EP theme.
In the first track ‘Pisces’ Breon talks about mentally preparing himself for an unexpected conversation with an ex-girlfriend. He psyches himself up to the moment she will repeat things she said throughout their relationship to her saying she still cares for him, and to the fact he can’t accept that and how all the conversation will make him feel.
Fast and fluctuating, the song sounds like an anxiety attack, springing on you like an out of body, panicked experience that emphasize the difficulty of those moments.
On the contrary, ‘Kill Me Now!’ sees Breon reminisce about the good times and the way that now broken relationship started. Simplicity, brightness and clarity not only are reflected in the mix, but also guide Breon’s rhymes. He explains: “It’s me being in Lala land without realizing the doom that will follow, which is why the song is titled ‘Kill Me Now!’ I would rather leave the planet than go through that again, no matter how good it felt.”
