WILLIAM RYAN KEY defies expectations with cinematic new single “Brighton”

“I think this song is a manifestation of my desire to set myself free from the constraints of what I’ve created in the past,” says William Ryan Key about his latest single, “Brighton” which is released today, January 5, 2022 via Equal Vision Records. Taken from his third EP Everything Except Desire (release date: February 11, 2022), the airy and textural track pushes Key a little further left from his past duties as Yellowcard vocalist and rhythm guitarist. “I wondered if it was too far removed from the music people expect to hear from me,” he expresses. “The more I pondered it, the more I realized that it might be, and that it was ok if it was.”

Clocking in at a little more than six minutes (almost twice the standard length of the songs he wrote with Yellowcard), “Brighton” ebbs and flows into a pastoral soundscape of crashing synths and atmospheric percussion while his distinctive vocals carry the melody. “The baseline of this song bounced around in my head for days,” he adds. “The verses are rhythmic and complex while the chorus just soars. This one is for driving at night with nowhere specific to go.”
