Kyros – ‘Two Frames of Panic’

80s synth-rock outfit KYROS present an action-packed thrill ride with their latest video single ‘Two Frames of Panic’, which features on their forthcoming third studio album releasing on 19th June via White Star Records.

From the offset, ‘Two Frames of Panic’ impresses with its bold and intense stature, cascading vocal melodies and satisfyingly dynamic animation from powerful start to jaw-dropping finish.

Rife with “easter egg” musical references ranging from subtle nods to the acapella vocal harmonies of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ to the stabbing orchestral hits of the Fairlight orch5 sample (originating from Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Rite of Spring’ and used by artists such as The Smiths, New Order, Duran Duran and more), ‘Two Frames of Panic’ is a nothing short of a musical treat from the band’s forthcoming album.

Don’t be deceived, however; the single’s heart-racing pace and chaotic delivery are born of inspiration drawn from much darker subject matter, as vocalist Adam Warne explains.

‘Two Frames of Panic’ was the first track written for Celexa Dreams, and it marks a real milestone of significance for me; I wrote it as an outlet in the midst of when my mental health wasn’t in a good place. I had burned out pretty badly in 2016 and suffered a bit of a mental breakdown that resulted in my outlook on life taking a real beating.”

Diagnosed with both panic disorder and agoraphobia, Warne began to feel his life crashing down around him. He was prescribed antidepressants and, before long, began to experience unwelcome side effects – most notably vivid dreams and nightmares induced by the medication.

“I knew I had to write about this”, continues Warne, detailing his reaction to these experiences and tumultuous dreams. “‘Two Frames of Panic’, both musically and lyrically marks a real outpour of what I was feeling at the time. My perception was marked with chaos, confusion, overstimulation – yet on the surface, I was seen as indifferent, neutral, grey and nonplussed as a result of the medication. I used the song to get those feelings out of my head in a way that made sense to me and possibly to others.”

In addition to the release of a new single, Kyros have also confirmed ‘Celexa Streams’, a virtual “tour” that will take place over the course of the next few months.

In the absence of the ability to physically tour the country in support of their forthcoming album, Warne and the band will be hosting a number of live performances featuring songs from ‘Celexa Dreams’ merged with fan favourites from their past releases. The band will also be appearing as part of the online Fusion 3.5 Festival, which will be streaming on 30th May. Details can be found on the festival’s Facebook Page.
