Lennon's Publicist Signs New Canadian Synthpop Band, Cygnets. Album Release Follows
Bruce Replogle, Director of Music Management USA, and former Publicist to John Lennon and Yoko Ono, announces the signing of Canadian synthpop rock group, Cygnets.
June 4, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Music Management USA is pleased to announce the signing of Canadian synthpop group, Cygnets. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, the band has been called "The best British band who aren't from Great Britain." Bruce Replogle, the Director of Music Management USA, and former Publicist to John Lennon and Yoko Ono on Double Fantasy, says this is an apt description as the band evokes an English sound, with comparisons to The Smiths, The Cure, and Depeche Mode.
Speaking with Logan Turner, the flamboyant, yet mysterious lead singer of the band, he is clear on the bands' direction and desire to create their own signature sound and vision. "We definitely want to do something original and unique, not just be another band that follows in the exact footsteps of other bands before us.
We are a trio and use large elements of electronic music. We have big memorable choruses, powerful dramatic lead vocals, interesting machine-generated sounds in the background. We don't have a drummer, and don't feel that we need one, we dont want to come off as "a rock and roll band", but instead straddle the line between electronic and pop music, but with distinct elements of rock. We have a very strong and dramatic live show currently with this setup.
We aim to have our music to be infectious, catchy, danceable, but contrasted by personal, thoughtful lyrics, with subject matter that is perhaps taboo or uncommon in standard rock music. Think Joy Division or The Smiths."
Cygnets is about to release a new album, 'Isolator', and embark on a tour to support this release. Their hypnotic, melodic, goth-tinged synthpop is a hook-laden, danceable collision of existential angst and celebratory sound sure to draw a wide fanbase.
