Kynsy Biography

Kynsy - the solo project of rising 23 year-old multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Ciara Lindsey - releases her debut single, ‘Cold Blue Light', 6 August 2020. Having previously performed on the Other Voices Music Trail and at Ireland Music Week, the Dublin artist kicked off this year with a whole host of 2020 Hot List features (including Eirewave 'The Next Big Thing).  A velvet-lined boxing-glove that delivers a sucker punch of a chorus as well as head-spinning hooks, the song’s wry lyrics depict fading chancers and their last grasp at relevance. Her louche almost rakish delivery is half world-weary lounge singer, half astute soothsayer. About the track an...

Kynsy - the solo project of rising 23 year-old multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Ciara Lindsey - releases her debut single, ‘Cold Blue Light', 6 August 2020. Having previously performed on the Other Voices Music Trail and at Ireland Music Week, the Dublin artist kicked off this year with a whole host of 2020 Hot List features (including Eirewave 'The Next Big Thing). 

A velvet-lined boxing-glove that delivers a sucker punch of a chorus as well as head-spinning hooks, the song’s wry lyrics depict fading chancers and their last grasp at relevance. Her louche almost rakish delivery is half world-weary lounge singer, half astute soothsayer. About the track and video, Kynsy said:

“‘Cold Blue Light’ is about the bullies we all encounter in life and looking for meaning in the darkness they create. I wanted to write a song that held some sort of balance between destruction and hope. It's based on an encounter I had at a new year’s eve party where there was a guy spouting racist remarks at people and it was quite upsetting and stuck with me. The result was a rowdy pop song truck full of sticky anger and synth pop goo. The video was filmed just with a camera on a tripod in my back garden, I wanted it to be direct and simple so people could focus on the music.”   

Moving from the metallic lurch of a nightclubbing Iggy Pop to the icy cool of St. Vincent and the futurism of Julian Casablancas, Kynsy has constructed her own world, one with a playful juxtaposition between the warmth of pitch perfect pop melodies and the stinging realism of her lyrics.
