VÉRITÉ

Bio

It’s been nearly two years since Kelsey Byrne released her debut album Somewhere In Between, and things have changed for her. “I feel like I’m a completely different person existing differently in the world since I made and released LP1,” says Vérité.

Gone, Vérité’s first release from her upcoming record, was the fruition of her first trip to Nashville. Co-written and produced by singer-songwriter Madi Diaz and Konrad Snyder, the song reintroduces the musician, capturing the devastating effects of something ending. Carried by haunting crescendos and Vérité’s powerhouse vocals, the track sees the singer pleading for time to stand still for a little while longer before her world turns upside down. “So leave the clothes and mess we made up all on the floor/Cause when we put them on we’re not in love anymore,” she belts.

On a personal level, Vérité recalls various relationships ending, but she believes the sentiment can really apply to any situation that’s final. “You’re sitting in bed with someone and everything is a mess around you, all your clothes are on the floor, everything is fucked up and you know the second you get up and put your clothes on, it’s over,” she explains.

Gone speaks to a larger theme she’ll be focusing on with her sophomore album: capturing the nuance of being in a relationship that isn’t romanticized or idealized. So, it’s fitting that this single is the first taste of a forthcoming album Vérité has coming down the pipeline.
