Every time I (Michael) hear a new Cygnets song, I’m becoming more and more aware that this band is becoming one of my all-time favourite bands. A bold statement to make, of course, but Cygnets are well-deserving of this high praise.
After being intrigued by their single trailer, I was delighted to hear “Day Seven,” which is paired up with “Lilya Forever.”
“Day Seven” is a glorious track and video. The song is another song that is sure to ignite many a dancefloor with its constantly pulsing synths and quick lyrics. The video is quite eerie, all done in black-and-white and featuring the band’s lead singer as he goes through a creepy ritual of some kind. It ends pretty dramatically.
“Lilya Forever” goes heavy on the bass and synth for a no less gripping song. “All things turn to dust” is the song’s hook- it serves well as a counterpoint to the previous song, with its religious references.
