Single Review: The Cynz – “Narrow Hips”-Release date October 7, 2022
If you ever wondered where have gone all those eighties rock bands, that defied categories with their sound, combining everything from garage, punk, power pop and what not else, then wonder no more, since New Jersey’s The Cynz are here, and their single ‘Narrow Hips’ proves it all.
Formed in 2011, around the songwriting talents of poet Cyndi Dawson (vocals) and They have been a staple on Henry Seiz (guitar/vocals.) Manhattan’s Lower East Side for more than a decade, but have toured as far as Sweden. How come they’ve escaped big record labels so far is frankly quite a mystery.
On the single, as elsewhere in their music, The Cynz are steeped in classic NYC influences like The Ramones, Dead Boys, Alice Cooper and Patti Smith. And all that to a best effect on ‘Narrow Hips.’
