Kyros – ‘Fear of Fear’
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.
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.
The band have now released a taste of what can be expected from the EP, in the form of ‘Fear of Fear’, the most straightforward and pop-influenced sounding track on the EP, with a vibe that ties closely to the tracks on Celexa Dreams.
“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.” Continues Adam, when speaking about the new song.
