This week’s Song of the Week comes from an exciting pop newcomer: CYN!
What is a CYN you ask? Well for starters, CYN is the latest artist to join Katy Perry‘s label, UnSub Records. Born into a humble middle-class home in Michigan, outside of Detroit, CYN (née Cynthia Nabozny) moved from Chicago to Los Angeles last year where she has spent much of 2017 working hard, writing and recording new material.
After making waves with her buoyant summer release “Together,” the rising songstress returns this month with the Felix Snow (Kiiara, Terror Jr) produced “Only With You” – another impressive offering that deserves your full, undivided attention.
“Only With You” is a sleek, sexy electro-pop gem coated in breathy vocals and dark ‘n stormy stabs of synthesizers and flashing disco lights – which is to say that it’s quite literally perfection. “I don’t want anything to do with anyone but you/ Only with you/ Anything to do with anyone but you, you…,” she declares throughout.
If this song doesn’t make you want to hear more from CYN, then there’s something wrong with you, period.
“I knew who Felix was and loved the songs he worked on previously, so I was geeked to work with him,” CYN said in a statement. “We wrote and recorded the song in North Hollywood. At the time, Felix was still working out of his living room. The song began on acoustic guitar and evolved to be some kind of hybrid, electronic funk pop vibe. We recorded vocals in a closet-turned vocal booth with no light. The vocals on the final track are the vocals from day one, which is something really special, I think. Overall, we wrote this song in probably 3 hours!”
