Following the recent release of their gorgeously energetic single ‘Rumour’, 80s synth-pop outfit KYROS have revealed ‘Phosphene’, the brand new video single drawn from the band’s forthcoming studio album, ‘Celexa Dreams’!
News of the band’s latest single comes along with the announcement of digital pre-orders of their third release, which can be made via this link. Pre-orders of physical copies will be available in due course, having been affected by the current lockdown across the UK.
With the album arriving on 19th June via White Star Records, Kyros’ latest single offers another look into the full experience, this time with a dense, textural track that adopts a more deliberate pace into deep, ballad-esque territories.
Set atop a backdrop of shimmering, minimalist synth melodies, the lyrical content of ‘Phosphene’ – delivered by band vocalist and keyboardist Adam Warne – seeks to come to terms with previous grudges and ended friendships, accepting that it demands too much energy to hold onto grudges.

“‘Phosphene’ is a very personal song to me,” comments Warne, offering insight into the band’s latest single release. “It was actually written directly in response to our debut album, ‘Synaesthesia’.”
“I wrote the lyrics on that album about someone who had negatively affected my life in a significant way at that point. I fell out of contact with that individual, but many years later, re-established contact after realising how pointless it was to hold onto grudges. It’s all just teenage drama at the end of the day. We mature, we gain experiences and learn how to cope with certain situations as we grow older.”
