CYN returns today with her highly anticipated new single, “Terrible Ideas” out now via UnSub Records. The song marks a decided shift in sound, revealing an edgier and darker side to the rising pop artist. Penned by CYN and frequent collaborator Matias Mora, “Terrible Ideas” offers listeners a first glimpse of what they can expect in 2019.
On “Terrible Ideas,” CYN’s trademark light and airy vocals skitter over a bed of dark and layered production, enveloped in heavy percussive elements, almost certainly guaranteed to raise a little hell. With a rousing, hands-in-the-air chorus, and sharp, pointed lyrics like, “I feel so alive, want you faster on the 405. Not scared to die. We get off on all these terrible ideas.” This is, quite literally CYN like you’ve never heard her before.
On her latest release CYN reveals, “Terrible Ideas is about getting involved with another person dangerously quick and loving every second of it.” She continues. “This song sounds different than anything else I’ve released because I continue to be confident enough to write things that are true to me in the moment, from the lyrics to the production.”
Last year CYN embarked on a 19-city North American Tour with acclaimed British trio, Years & Years, as well as dates with both Sigrid and Katy Perry. She is also confirmed to play a Popscene show at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop on April 26with Anna of The North headlining.
