CHECK OUT THE BRUTE CHORUS AT PIANO’S IN NEW YORK CITY, TUESDAY, MARCH 6TH AT 8PM. With Sharen.
Cynets are a staples in their homeland of Canada, as they’ve shared the stage with high profile indie acts such as You Say Party! We Say Die!, and Shout Out Out Out Out. Breaking big in Edmonton, with significant national radio play, and coverage from high profile press outlets, the trio are ready to take over U.S. soil. It’s about time they make it here with their brand of new-wave-meets-electro-meets-post-punk style in tow.
The band, fronted by Logan Turner, is the culmination of many years of hard work, as a songwriter and musician who worked privately writing and recording hundreds of songs before deciding to explore a group dynamic. This collaboration was finally realized in close friends Chris Bruce and Dan Snow. Bringing textured, inspiring guitar work and bright, catchy synthesizer hooks, they compliment and enhance Turner’s ambitious songwriting style and singular, melodic vocals.
Favorable comparisons have included The Smiths, Joy Division and Depeche Mode, but the band undoubtedly has a uniqueness of its own, contrasting danceable, uplifting beats with darkly personal lyrics.
The forthcoming follow up LP ‘Dark Days’, is due for release on March 6th will also be available for FREE, preceded by the killer synth-punk anthem ‘Teenager. Listen to/download the track for free:
