Issue 121 Syd
Syd is the third face of Clash 121.
An alt-R&B voyager whose extensive catalogue includes not just one, but two game-changing projects – Odd Future and The Internet – Syd has continually kept ahead of the pack, changing her sound and shifting her methodologies.
Yet now, as she approaches a new decade of life, Syd could be ready to unleash her most personal project to date. She’s on the cusp; this next birthday takes Syd out of her 20s, a period of success and turbulence, but above all learning. Moving into newfound maturity, she’s learned to balance the pain life can sometimes offer with the inspirational possibilities of art.
As she puts it: “I wonder what it would be like for somebody like me now, watching and listening to me and hearing about my heartbreak and my triumph…”
Also featured in this issue are Koffee, Syd, Kehlani, Bree Runway, multi-faceted creative force Alewya; the inscrutable Deyaz; R&B force Raveena; Manchester polymath Iceboy Violet; NYC alt-pop collective MICHELLE; UK rap hit machine Young T & Bugsey, and many more.
