Stephen Bailey’s latest single Hyde heralds a new stylistic direction for the Mt. Mountain frontman - it’s sonically expansive and lush with Stephen’s voice up close, personal and nicely saturated. Layered intertwining synths flutter along with chugging bass and drums just behind the beat. Bailey’s falsetto is wistful, barely there yet immediate.
Though Hyde - like the rest of 9 are a cohesive step up from the bedroom psych pop of Silo - Steve’s laments remain introspective. Expressions of indecisiveness towards love, misinterpretation and happiness in isolation litter the lyrics of Hyde and 9 Herein.
The accompanying video, directed by friend and frequent collaborator Sam Eastcott follows this loose narrative of indifference through symbols of European Folklore, Religious Symbolism and Freudian Theory. It’s a psychodrama condensed - using editing to create a sense of momentum that builds throughout - mirroring the plagued inner consciousness of the protagonist.
"Stephen Bailey has expanded on Silo and delivered a beautiful follow up full of hazy dreamy nuggets with an emotional core that hits deep." Optical Sounds Fanzine
