Kelsey Byryne better known as her song moniker Vérité, dropped a new EP entitled Sentiment. Vérité, currently on tour with MS MR & Børns , creates a sonically metaphorical EP about relationships, and love, that allows Vérité to connect to a broader audience. Following Vérité’s 2014 EP, Echo, Sentiment creates a dream-like state of sound. The EP opens with Wasteland, which immediately grabs your attention with her saying, “It’s like i’m living in a wasteland.” The song gradually builds into a pulsating, electric beat that resembles the beat of a racing heart. With Wasteland, Vérité shows a vulnerable side and brings us into her world with her gripping lyrics. Vérité’s use of her voice as instrumentation in the second track, Colors, proves that her talent goes beyond her metaphorical lyrics, and airy voice, but also showcases the diversity in her sound. On the ethereal track Rearrange, one of the EP’s stand out tracks, Vérité takes you on a journey with her lyrics that help you lose yourself in the music. It’s a story of wanting to become someone else. Looking for that one person to help transform her state of mind. Vérité ends her four song EP with the title track, Sentiment. The track stays steady with its minimal production, then opens up to a pounding chorus that creates a more radio-friendly sound. Easily one of the best tracks on Vérité’s EP. Overall, Sentiment is a strong body of work that utilizes metaphorical language that challenges the listener to their own interpretation of sensibility.
As of now, there is no release date for a full album from Vérité; however, she has proven through her two bodies of work to be an artist to watch out for musically.
