Why? Because Cindy has crafted an intriguing set of songs that unspool like a series of dreams, or perhaps black and white movies of imagined dreams. On most of the songs the vocals are hushed and ride insistent but restrained rhythms and lightly applied guitar and keys. On a few songs, such as "Falcon Heavy" and "Wrong Answer", the band strikes out and delivers material with more volume and pace, and prove equally adept. But in the main, it is an album of darkly shaded moods and hazy atmospherics, all of which are given enough shape and drive to make a compelling set of music.
The members of Cindy are Karina Gill (guitar/vocals), Aaron Diko (synth/keys), Simon Phillips (drums/percussion/backing vocals), and Jesse Jackson (bass/keys/backing vocals).
