Celexa Dreams LP also out now via White Star Records
Modern synth-prog outfit Kyros have cemented themselves in 2020 as one of the most hard-working and innovative bands in the modern prog scene. Following on from the success of their new album Celexa Dreams in June 2020, the band took their new songs to the ‘stage’ and toured Celexa Streams to the world wide web. One of the many bands that had to adapt and evolve in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Kyros seamlessly refashioned their way of working to show they are progressive both in musical style and in work ethic.
The London based quartet are not showing any signs of slowing down any time soon, and have now exercised their eccentricities and sewn together each of the members’ musical influences into a four track EP that showcases a paradox of influences that may or may not surprise fans. Unifying genres such as pop, prog, dubstep, and art rock – Kyros are now displaying everything they have to offer in Four of Fear out on 27th November via White Star Records.
KYROS IS: Adam Warne – lead vocals and keyboards; Joey Frevola – guitar; Peter Episcopo – bass guitar; Robin Johnson – drums
Adam Warne says this about the EP
Four of Fear contains four very purposefully different sounding tracks that represent four very different sides of the bands writing style. From the wacky and eccentric through to the lush and dense through to the anthemic, hooky side of our writing. We wanted to see if this experiment of four different musical styles, yet with multiple common threads running between them would ‘work’ and we’re incredibly proud of the results. Lyrically, this track is about coming to terms with the fear of people’s prejudice and close-mindedness and the mind tricks and mental preparation that goes into being honest to not just other people, but even yourself. Being truly afraid of being open because you fear other people fearing your true self.”
WHAT THE MEDIA SAY ABOUT KYROS
“A dash of 80s art pop and a dose of prog rock to cure what ails you”
“Celexa Dreams is the confluence of many styles that are sonically linked, but underappreciated in terms of the radiant glow that can result”
Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“Put on your headphones and go out into the sunlight my friend, and bring Celexa Dreams with you”
