Following BBC Music Introducing Clyde Syde Presents Im Okay
With the release of his latest single, Clyde Syde is back. Take a look at what he has to say since it speaks of a very personal issue that many people are dealing with right now.
Clyde Syde‘s Im Okay is a gift. This song encapsulates the essence of Emo Rap. Clyde creates a personal soundtrack that explores how we feel when going through life’s many ups and downs, specifically loneliness.
We can say that the song is an emo-pop ballad featuring Clyde’s signature rocky vibe and a flavour of the trap sound very common among young artists.
The song is about the singer’s struggle with depression. In other words, he describes how it feels like when we can’t get up even on a good day and how we want to escape from reality sometimes. The singer also describes how people sometimes feel like they don’t fit in anywhere, even with close friends and family.
Clyde’s previous singles have been more upbeat and danceable, but “Im Okay” shows off a different side of his musical personality. It will be interesting to see if this is just an experiment or if it represents where Clyde plans to go musically in the future.

The lyrics are about overcoming difficult times in life, with the singer rapping about his own expression about what is depression, a message that for others can include self-harm and suicide attempts.
It is not common for most young people to care about mental health to the extent of making music about it, despite the fact that it is an important topic to discuss. It’s different for the singer, in his own life, Syde has lost friends to depression—which is why he’s so passionate about raising awareness.
“My latest track is called Im Okay, I really wanted to write a track that spoke about loneliness and anxiety and how it can be so hard for people to speak up about it. I have lost friends to depression so this song comes from a very personal place.”Clyde Syde
The track has received mixed reviews from fans so far: some have praised it for being innovative and unique, and others loved the beat and mix of features blending rap with rock.
The Leicestershire-based artist and songwriter Clyde Syde is a member of the alternative indie genre. As he is a 90s kid, his music draws references to and takes inspiration from that era, whilst also blending genres and taking cues from the modern alternative sound of today.
His music sounds like he’s been best buds with Juice Wrld, Post Malone, and The Kid Laroi for a long time now, which makes everything that much more intriguing. Be sure to give this artist a listen, and follow him on Spotify if you haven’t already.
