“Weight” is the first single from the eagerly anticipated self-titled debut album from Naarm (Melbourne) band Cyanide Thornton. Featuring members of Two Steps On The Water, the band was founded in early 2016 and has been steadily gaining traction in Melbourne’s alternative rock circuits. While incorporating elements of folk and rock, Cyanide Thornton transcends its composite parts, moving into a space of raw emotion and fierce determination. Ellah Blake (drums) and David Pesavento (bass) provide understated yet resolute punctuation for each song, holding together the music with a remarkable tenderness and affection, and providing a cradle for Sienna Thornton’s masterful and harrowing lyrics and guitar work. Thornton’s voice is at once wistful and melancholic, painting narratives with a tender immediacy. The album evokes a sense of magical realism, with its lyrics transforming painfully human experiences of love and loss into magical and ethereal moments. Cyanide Thornton is a record wreathed in tenderness, honesty and intimacy, and will guide you from the dark corners of your mind to somewhere unearthly and supernatural. Album out November 9th thru Bedroom Suck / Remote Control Records.

I feel like I’ve really struck gold with this Melbourne three-piece Cyanide Thornton . The band release their debut self-titled record on November 9th, and this is the first single off of it. I was more than happy to sit back and listen to what I thought was an entirely instrumental track, only to be gleefully surprised with singer Sienna Thornton’s vocals at the near three-minute mark. Feeling really good about this one.
