Somebody got to give way, babe
Or no-ones getting anything, and you're the one for me
Loves a game of give take
Maybs its the time of the year
cause I've been going crazy day
I dont know what to say
Loves a game of give and take
We cant continue this way
or no-ones getting anything, and I'm the one for you
Somebody got to give way
Dancing the yin and the yang
Our body's got its own part to play
and you're the one for me
Somethings gotta give way
'Sounds like Thundercat discovering Buddhism and artificial intelligence at the same time.' (Ex-Friendly, Truth & Lies Music/Totally Wired Radio)
Ghostly International Best of 2022
Melbourne multi-media-genre-instrumentalist Cy Gorman invites you to see the world through rose-tinted glasses, much like the ones he wore (seen on the cover art) throughout the making of his new album 'Hiwave'. Savouring every last drop of his creative process, Cy (pronounced as in cy-borg) lays down a lush psychedelic picnic of keys, saxophone, vocals, delectable beats, sound design and skillful songwriting for a shapeshifting and mindbending sonic ride.
Like a true cyborg, Cy seeks the perfect integration of human and machine, combining his jazz school training with flowing electronic soundscapes inspired by exploratory grooves from labels like Brainfeeder, Compost, Warp, Jazzanova and Ninja Tune.
The songs on 'Hiwave' are all stand-alone genre-gems, with nods to R&B, chillwave, footwork, AOR and 20+ years of hip hop. A common thread through the album is Cy's concentrated process of play: nature, air, wonder, flow, altered states, slow motion, connecting with family and friends, embracing 'mistakes' and honouring the masters from Stevie Wonder, Brian Eno and Prince to The Neptunes, as well as the pioneering production vibes of Thundercat, Mndsgn, Iman Omari and beyond!
Support for Cy has included BBC, KCRW, Spotify Fresh Finds, Apple Music, Triple J, Hotel Costes, Worldwide FM, InterFM Tokyo and (the mighty!) Bandcamp Weekly.
