SFYA is the project of singer Su Rehrl and multi-instrumentalist Marc Bruckner. SFYA, pronounced similarly to “sphere”, is an acronym for “Simply For Your Attention”, a simple and to the point invitation to focus and engage.
FYA’s sound lies somewhere between acoustic and dream pop. The duo uses the archetypal singer/songwriter sound and blends it with elements of electronic music to take it a step further. Marc provides the core with a rich tapestry of guitar, keyboards, and beats, slowly building up each song with the help of loops and other effects. The tunes are carried by Su’s voice, which has a fine, silvery, almost crystalline quality, but also possesses great depth and perhaps even a certain air of mystery. Su also has her own bag of tricks, and adds to the mix by creating her own choral harmonies and vocal textures. The result is a genre of pop music that is intimate and expansive at the same time.
