Shares new single and video, “Mr Nice Guy”
Plays live at Pitchfork Music Festival London on Sunday 14th November
Announces a London show at Communion Club Night at The Social on Thursday 18th November
Kynsy, the solo project of the 23 year-old Irish multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Ciara Lindsey, today shares a brand new single and video, “Mr Nice Guy”. The song is co-produced by Kynsy and James Dring (Gorillaz / Jamie T / Sorry) and sees Kynsy bring a swaggering, synth-drenched atmosphere to the detached nonchalance of her lyrics.
The accompanying video was directed by Dave Fox and Conor Donoghue.
Talking about the new song and video, Kynsy says: “It’s a song about money and working and having one of those horrible bosses who tells you he’s trying to be ‘the nice guy’ while he goes through you outside on the street. It’s mostly based on an encounter I had in a waitressing job. I suppose there is a message in there about the power of empathy and kindness in how you deal with people.
The video echoes a lot of the themes in the song just pushed to an extreme level. Working with Dave and Conor we created a surreal world that’s really colourful but eerie at the same time. The master [me!] is on a constant power trip and forces her minions to endure some pretty awful treatment for her own gratification. To honour the positive message in the song we get to see how treating people like this will come back to bite you one way or another.
“Mr Nice Guy” is the first new single from Kynsy since the release of her critically acclaimed debut EP, Things That Don’t Exist released in January of this year.
Kynsy sweeps in with this gargantuan hit, “Mr Nice Guy” will hook the audience the moment the rhythm consumes the intense atmosphere. Combining ethereal vocal notes, fierce lyrics, and this array of impressionable textures and alluring melody. A compelling artist with this fearless presence, the bold energy Kynsy conveys throughout their creations is something else!
Be sure to remember the name, this is the artist you need to follow and support. Powerful, innovative and confident- what more do you need.
Kynsy will perform her debut UK live shows this November, with a date at the inaugural Pitchfork Music Festival London at The Roundhouse on Sunday 14th November alongside Stereolab, Girl Band, Beak>, Ana Roxanne, Folly Group and Martha Skye Murphy. Tickets are available here.
