Loop-pedal pop artist and Austin-based sound engineer, Sydney Wright has just released her new single, "Underwater" from the upcoming album “Seiche” due out November 9th.
Between her latest releases, Wright endured a harrowing experience on June 30th: a hit and run accident in downtown Austin. Surviving several severe injuries and surgeries. including four rods in her right leg, screws in her ankle, a wrist splint, a compound ankle fracture, broken tibia, multiple wrist and lumbar fractures, Wright is still pressing on and releasing music throughout the Fall.
After the accident, the Austin community came to her side. Wright was approached by The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, and her friends and family started a Go Fund Me. Cheer Up Charlie’s, where Wright ran sound primarily is hosting a benefit show on September 29; Wanderlust, where she ran sound and booked Live Music Classes, hosted a benefit class in August.
"It’s about Denton, Texas, where I graduated college. I met my best friends there. We went so hard, we were good at turning the weekday cares into that weekend flare,” Wright says of the song. There’s a powerful sense of peace and pure happiness in “Time of Night”. The synths move you and the (heart)beats skip as the vocals float overhead. “‘Time of Night’ is after the bars closed when we would stay out and keep visiting under the stars and streetlights on the town square.”
