What a great debut single from Kynsy, the solo project of rising 23 year-old multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Ciara Lindsey!
Out today, Cold Blue Light is a driving pop/rock tune with stinging lyrics, great instrumentation and a stunning melody.

Having previously performed on the Other Voices Music Trail and at Ireland Music Week, the Dublin artist kicked off this year with a whole host of 2020 Hot List features, including 2FM’s Rising 2020 list, Golden Plec’s 2020 Picks, Last Mixed Tape 10 Emerging Acts for 2020 and Hot Press Hot for 2020.
A velvet-lined boxing-glove that delivers a sucker punch of a chorus as well as head-spinning hooks, the song’s wry lyrics depict fading chancers and their last grasp at relevance. Her louche almost rakish delivery is half world-weary lounge singer, half astute soothsayer.
Discussing the track and video, Kynsy said: “Cold Blue Light is about the bullies we all encounter in life and looking for meaning in the darkness they create.
“I wanted to write a song that held some sort of balance between destruction and hope. It’s based on an encounter I had at a New Year’s Eve party where there was a guy spouting racist remarks at people and it was quite upsetting and stuck with me.
“The result was a rowdy pop song truck full of sticky anger and synth pop goo. The video was filmed just with a camera on a tripod in my back garden, I wanted it to be direct and simple so people could focus on the music.”
