Bryony Williams shares new single ‘Trip Me Up’

Indie-pop singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bryony Williams shares her new single ‘Trip Me Up’, out everywhere now. For fans of Marika Hackman, Courtney Barnett and The Big Moon, ‘Trip Me Up’ is a heavenly slice of glistening, nostalgia tinted indie-pop. Bryony’s first new music since her 2020 EP State I’m In, this new single sees shift both sonically and lyrically for the multifaceted artist.

With a preoccupation with her inward journey through life, Bryony navigates the world with a curious mind and her guitar in hand. As a queer artist, she creates cinematic, sonic, and lyrical worlds that breach the gap between genres in order to resonate with what it means to be human. Her natural gift for telling deeply vulnerable, yet whimsical stories that brim with a hopeful sincerity shines through on this new track.

Speaking of ‘Trip Me Up’, Bryony says, “Originally written back in 2017 whilst watching the cult classic, The Virgin Suicides, on repeat to analyse for my film studies class on my media degree, with this song, I began writing a response to the storyline and themes entangled in the narrative of the film. This response, admittedly, was only the first verse and chorus, and only did the song find its final lyrics in the recording process of the album in 2022.

“At the core of ‘Trip Me Up’, I essentially wanted to revisit typical old school, prom-like romance we get from films made in the 90s, but with a modern twist. The narrative throughout the track though is through a female lens and shows the frustrations and complications that young love encounters (or at least like it is in the movies) whilst on a journey of reclaiming a sense of self and power in this storyline.”
