Easy To Be Cynical


New single out now, tour in March

Great Cynics have unveiled visuals to accompany their new single ‘Want You Around (Chunky)’. Taken from last year’s ‘I Feel Weird’ album, which was released via Specialist Subject, the track is the second from the record to get its own video. As Giles from the band says – “I had this idea and thought it might be shit, but we tried it and it was just so much fun to do. Dean from Muncie Girls leant out of the back window of a car and filmed me bombing down a hill on my skateboard. It’s a classic hill to skate down at night. Our friend Jack Hyde (from The Cut Ups) put some animations on it and yeah, that’s about it! It cost 15 quid!”

Just like the rest of the record, the song was recorded live in the studio and truly exemplifies Great Cynics’ anthemic, hook-fuelled punk rock aesthetic. The release of the video precedes the band’s forthcoming tour with Jeff Rosenstock which kicks off mid-March.

Based in London, Great Cynics take the hazy punk rock sound of The Lemonheads and mix it with Billy Bragg’s romance. They’ve shared stages with a multitude of like-minded groups including Against Me!, Deer Tick, Off With Their Heads, The Smith Street Band and Anti-Flag among others, with Jeff Rosenstock being the latest artist to take them out on the road. This is Great Cynics’ first UK tour since July last year. Stay tuned for more new music from the band in 2016.
