"Its enough to make anyone a Cynic"

 
Clear Channel New Music Network



"Three former members of the once-popular band have reconnected and launched CYNIX, a kick-ass band with a sexy, powerful sound like nothing this writer has ever heard...." "... The mix is a perfect fusion of electronica, modern/alternative, and rockpop with slight influences drawn on jazz and bossa-nova. The result is a sexy pumping groove with some really catchy hooks.... " "... Xerri's unique vocal style is quite impressive. For such a small girl, this little vixen produces an amazingly powerful sound that is controlled and hauntingly seductive. Xerri's lyrics are filled with cunning witticisms and more than a small dose of rage. The marriage of music and lyrics will leave you more than impressed... Donato acts as the backbone... offering perfect counterpoint to the striking lines the group has written.... "
- Clear Channel New Music Network


"CYNIX"

"...The sound of the tune threw me off at first...I couldn't seem to categorize the genre. Was Cynix rock? Alternative? Electronica? Like much of the music emanating from the live music scene in Brooklyn these days, it's getting harder and harder to assign a label to music type without the addition of thirty hyphens. The fusion of genres is leading to something truly unique and exciting for the music industry- We just may need more labels. With bands like Coldplay and Linkin Park breaking genre barriers and bringing them into the mainstream, audiences have gotten a taste and are hungry for more.... " "...Audacity, which was the first tune written by the new group in a collaborative effort (Cynix produces themselves as well on their debut album, Dirty Laundry) has all the makings of a pop culture hit and still manages to bring something new to the table...The lyrics are cold, sarcastic, and cynical (excuse the pun) but they keep you hooked. Included is the phrase, '...you taught me everything you know...would I lie to you?' ...The music backing the Pulitzer Prize-caliber wording falls nothing short of brilliant..."

Bio

Cynix, even though a fairly recent newcomer to the modern rock music scene, has quickly established itself as one of the most sought-after unsigned acts today. The Clear Channel’s New Music Network hailed the new fusion as "modern rock pop electronica and alternative, with slight influences drawn on jazz and bossa-nova. The result is a sexy pumping groove with some really catchy hooks... It will hit you like PJ Harvey, or Patti Smith, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Portishead, but with the mainstream appeal of say, Coldplay…." With their virtuoso street smarts, quiet sarcasm, and a debut album that has been hailed one which has "all the makings of a pop culture hit and still manages to bring something new to the table", Cynix is catching the ears and attention of a worldwide audience

* Summer 04’ West Coast Tour with new wave legend- Bow Wow Wow featuring Adrian Young of No Doubt and Oslo
* Dirty Laundry", "Audacity", and "Dirty Little Secret" have all reached UMN's top 10 alternative charts since the release. "Dirty Laundry" hit number 4 on the Unsigned Music Network's alternative chart and is holding strong
* "Cynix’s smash debut album, "Dirty Laundry" has received distribution through Tower Records, among other fine retailers and countless digital distributors worldwide

Cynix is bringing audiences what they are hungry for: a connection and a change. Built from the ashes of a few of NYC's most popular bands gone wrong, Cynix has a story that would rival any Oscar-winning screenplay. It is a tale filled with deception, cheating, theft, violence, tragedy, and the determination to tell it like it is. The addictively unique sound coupled with their mind-blowing, and often times, bizarre stage presence is sure to keep those venues packed. With over 10,000 CDs sold independently, and a rapidly growing fan base on both coasts, Cynix is ready to bring music back where it belongs- to a state of creativity - that still reaches audiences like nothing else. The group is led by vocalist Karen Xerri, "whose unique vocal style is quite impressive. For such a small girl, this little vixen produces an amazingly powerful sound that is controlled and hauntingly seductive."(NMN 2003), drummer Rick Donato, who has been hailed by rhythm aficionados as "quite the machine", and guitarist John Packes whose guitar chops have brought that raw edge that Cynix fans crave. Cynix members have achieved international exposure in their current project as well as numerous former projects. Notable highlights include:

* Cynix’s music has been heard on over 370 college radio stations, regularly making Top 20 Playlists.
* Cynix music can be heard on various commercials, television programs, and films.
* Karen Xerri has been heard on countless MTV commercials
* Media exposure has ranged from Maxim to The Clear Channel's New Music Network.

Cynix's members have brought their mind-blowing music to every corner of the world- from Europe's live music venues to Cynix's native NYC to the band's second home in Los Angeles. After all this, they have managed to stay true to their unique sound, brutally honest lyrics, and above all...the music.
