Stockholm-based songwriter Amanda Cygnaeus AKA Cy steeps us in indie pop nostalgia with her latest release ‘Hate To Hate You’.
A nod to the 90s, there is a grunge edge among the rich melodic lines of the song. Her vocals effortlessly float over its ambling music bed but she still makes this feel beautifully refreshing.
Piercing the sonic murk of some of her peers, this combines hope, fragility and above all a fierce humility within her performance. ‘Hate To Hate You‘ is a sublime listen.
