There’s a certain sense of catharsis that hits you across the face like a cold gust of wind when BERWYN graces the mic. The Trinidad-born, Romford-raised rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer is unlike much of the run-of-the-mill artists that capitalize on trends and rinsed-out sounds, often resulting in lackluster lyricism that’s predicated on selling as opposed to telling. BERWYN has a story to tell, and he does it in an unforgettable manner. Today the East Londoner’s story comes full-frontal with the release of his debut single “GLORY,” which follows contributions for Headie One and Fred again..’s deep-seated GANG mixtape as well as his work alongside Richard Bussell for his recent FRIDAY FOREVER LP.

Over a minimalistic, piano chord-driven backdrop, BERWYN’s lyrics shine like a light at the end of a dark tunnel. He relays poetic narratives about hope, hustle, and struggle as he delivers sung choruses and powerful bars that highlight his unmistakable candor. His rapping is as cathartic as Dave and his singing is as ghostly as James Blake, with his lyrical narratives a powerful reflection of his place within society, and his will to overcome. “Lately I’ve been drinking a lot/Or maybe its in my DNA, maybe it’s the way things have been going for me/Lately I’ve been thinking a lot/Maybe I’ll always be a slave, maybe I’ll never break these chains, maybe I need a twist of fate,” he proclaims.

On top of the single’s release, BERWYN has also shared a self-directed visual for the effort, which sees him performing the song in isolation alongside some glitched-out effects.
