Some voices seem designed for accompaniment by a specific instrument. For SYML, the instrument is the piano. That makes sense, since the songwriting and singing are by a pianist. SYML is the performance name of Brian Fennell in Seattle.
“Better” is another example of the strong working relationship between the piano and vocals within a SYML track. The song is about a guy who recognizes that he benefits more from a relationship than she does. She “came into the picture like a natural,” while he entered her picture as “such a broken fool.”
