will hyde REVEALS INTIMATE AND VULNERABLE NEW SINGLE “dark until September.”

will hyde



will hyde from Melbourne has revealed his new single, which takes a new sonic direction, and represents his depth as an artist. Following up three hit releases, “easy for u.”, “meant to be.” and “over u.”, comes “dark until September.”, an utterly gorgeous, melancholy ballad imbued with will’s now-trademark open-hearted honesty. The single reveals an entirely new side to will, and promises that his upcoming EP “with u in mind.” (out in October) will reach far beyond a typical pop release.



“i wrote dark until september during a time in my life when everything was falling apart,” said will. “i was evaluating a lot of things in my world – the person i had become, the person i wanted to be in the future & i had sort of fallen out of love with the music industry. even tho i felt those feelings i still found myself in a different state, away from home, travelling by bus for 2 hours to do studio sessions everyday with a close friend, alex henriksson. it felt right to still make music even if i didn’t know what it was for. i was realising that some of the relationships i had in my life weren’t as reliable as i thought. i was searching for something in others & that left me feeling sort of empty. this is me looking for love inside myself in a time when all i felt was hopeless & tired.”


will hyde’s first solo release, “easy for u.” immediately generated excitement from pop tastemakers around the world, including triple j Unearthed, Project U TV, PileRats, Forte Magazine in Australia, and international publications such as Wonderland Magazine (UK), Variance Magazine (US), Ones to Watch (US) and Clash Magazine (UK).





easy for u.” was closely followed by the funky, 80’s-infused dance track “meant to be.”, premiered by triple j’s Home and Hosed. He then revealed the Domanic Fike-esque track “over u.”, which had fans clamouring for more. These bonafide bangers have firmly placed will hyde at the centre of a new DIY-pop revolution.




Developing beyond his teenage producing project SŸDE, will hyde has emerged as a fully-realised solo artist. At only 20, his music glistens with texture and a relatable balance of joy and melancholy that his early ventures couldn’t evoke on their own. 


“dark until september.” is another taste of will hyde’s debut EP, ‘with u in mind’, set for release in October this year via Pack Records.


“dark until september.” is available to stream on all platforms now.

Praise for will hyde:

“Australian pop auteur will hyde is only just out of his teens, yet the songwriter’s youth belies his driven experience… His sound – a Venn diagram of left-field R&B, lucid electronics, and mutant pop – is nigh-on irresistible, and he’s set to prove it in 2020.” Clash Magazine (UK)

“Bringing together shimmering synths and enthralling vocals, Hyde explores clarity in relationships against stripped-back instrumental.” – Wonderland Magazine (UK)


“In the enchanting, synth heavy single (“meant to be.”), Hyde lets us in on a piece of his personal love life and the heart break he’s endured… Hyde steps up his game production-wise with “meant to be.” and proves himself as an emerging artist ready to take the reins in this industry.” – Ones to Watch (US)


“Having firmly announced himself as an artist to watch with his well-received debut single, fast rising Australian newcomer will hyde continues his hot streak with stellar sophomore offering “meant to be.”. Laying dreamy vocals over gorgeous production, the track builds to an earworm chorus that will stay with you long after the first listen.”Vents Magazine

“It’s an entrance into a lo-fi, bedroom-pop-esque sound, with a stripped-back instrumental laden with shimmering synth work and plucking guitar work forming an underlay for Will‘s vocals… undisturbed in the spotlight.” – PileRats


“Perfect debut… an extremely ideal first moment which has the crisp production you’d demand from Troye Sivan, with the vocal strength of a Ruel or Sam Fischer, without imposing on any of those artists’ individuality.” Project U TV


“‘easy for u.’ is a groovy alt-pop moment that reflects on giving more in a relationship than you receive… Mature, reflective and joyous…” – Thomas Bleach
