Edinburgh producer and multi-instrumentalist Cyrano has released a new track titled “Afterburns”.
Few artists in the digital age are daring enough to release a 6-minute song, let alone two versions at once. The writing of Cyrano’s meditative and dreamy new single “Afterburns” became a form of therapy for him, as he penned the thoughts and words he didn’t say throughout his split.
To mourn the indecision in his relationship, the Edinburgh-based producer and multi-instrumentalist cycles between short, aggressive lines and lengthier, more delicate ones on his new track “Afterburns”
This is is the third track from his upcoming first EP Consolations, and it was produced by Kit Monteith of Foals. The record follows his recent afterparty anthems “Collateral” and “Tundra”, which earned him a second consecutive Hype Machine Number 1 and earned him the title of ‘Artist of the Week’ at The Scotland On Sunday newspaper.
Speaking about “Afterburns”, Cyrano says, “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.
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”.
