New Release: Aderyn - 'Yearning'

Showing a slightly different side of Aderyn, ‘Yearning’ is less of a pop-hit, and more of an introspective, romantic indie ballad. With slow minimal drums and cello providing the backing, it is layered with a simple acoustic guitar with occasional electric guitar licks to pull on the heartstrings. Aderyn's characteristic vocal is delivered with an open heart here as she yearns for her crush.

“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

Recorded in her parents house in her childhood room, Aderyn wanted to maintain and capture the vulnerability in the final recording.

“We didn't record to a metronome, and added wailing guitars, sweeping bowed double bass and an echoey floor tom that I wanted to sound like a heartbeat. There’s a lot of peaks and troughs
