Afterburns Cyrano


    Fade into a dream state with Cyrano's new single "Afterburns" - Out October 12th In the digital age there aren’t many artists brave enough to release a 6-minute single, let alone two versions at the same time. For Cyrano, the process of writing his meditative and dreamy new single ‘Afterburns’ became a kind of therapy, as he pens the thoughts not shared and the words not said in his breakup. “To me, the Afterburns of a relationship is when the coals are on the fire, and you’re wondering whether to give it another stoke for a flame. If you spend too much time thinking, it’ll just fade away” shares Cyrano. On Afterburns, the Edinburgh based producer and multi-instrumentalist cycles between short, assertive lines and longer, more delicate phrases to lament the indecision in his relationship. “I wanted Afterburns to personify my feelings, from the lyrics and melodies to its length and flow. The whole track is one big thought, and the most idiosyncratic song of my music for the late night overthinkers.” Alongside the release, Cyrano has created a 12-question personality test for listeners to identify if they are introverted or extroverted. Depending on their answers, they will be diverted to the Introverted or Extroverted mix of the track. Take Cyrano's Personality Test over at “When I was living in Singapore, I was reading a book by Susan Cain called ‘Quiet’ about introversion and extroversion. At the same time, I was listening over the various mixes I’d been sent of Afterburns and I started to feel these qualities within two of the mixes. One felt like the type of song you’d want to sing along to in a festival crowd while the other felt like one for your earphones, and a moment for yourself.” Produced by Foals’ percussionist Kit Monteith, Afterburns marks the third instalment from Cyrano’s upcoming debut EP, Consolations. The single follows on from his recent afterparty anthems Collateral and Tundra, which saw the Scottish producer achieve a second consecutive Hype Machine Number 1 and named The Scotland on Sunday’s Artist of the Week. Cyrano will round off his year by joining Leif Erikson on a UK tour, as he looks to hit the ground running in 2022.

If I told you all my fears darling would we still be here in the afterburns? We know silence doesn't heal; it's a force to turn us in the afterburns I thought you never wanted, I thought you never needed somebody? Cos all I ever wanted was the words in your eyes... As I picked you up and down, while the band played 14 crowds, could it hit me harder? Hit me harder As I built you up just to let me down, I never really thought the space would make you hit me harder... Hit me harder And I see my sun set affection in another direction... If you told me all your fears I could've figured you out I thought maybe we were in a hold up, and then you let me go... While the band played 14 Crowns would you let me love you, again? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Written by James Vettese (Cyrano) Produced by Kit Monteith Extroverted Mix by Jamie Ward Introverted Mix by Jag Jago Mastered by Felix Davis
