Musician SYML examines everything from faith to feelings in his new album

On March 9 in Santa Monica, actor Eve Hewson will be honoured at the annual Oscar Wilde Awards with the Wilde Card Award. She starred in Netflix’s critically acclaimed series Behind Her Eyes. Its theme song, ‘Mr Sandman’, was written by SYML, the solo project of American singer and multi-instrumentalist Brian Fennell.

On the phone from America, Brian says Behind Her Eyes “was a good show. And when I figured out the connection, it was special,” he adds, meaning that he grew up in Seattle listening to Eve’s father Bono sing.
