Cyrus Reynlods is a Los Anegeles-based composer and songwriter. His music is the result of a background in contemporary orchestration andcutting–edge soun. he signed to Dumont Dumont (Ry X, Josin) and shared a new track titled “Foraker” which features S. Carey (Bon Iver). Watch the official video directed by Ben Simon Rehn.
Speaking about the track Cyrus explains, “Foraker, at its heart, is a love letter to my wife, harpist Lara Somogyi, and set in the Denali region of Alaska through the eyes of a wayward traveler. Theres this deep connection with the heart of the glacier (Foraker) and the outdoors and he keeps coming back to this same place to look for something thats actually inside himself. Its a harkening back to why I write music, and a new sort of authenticity for me. Before I was writing, I was manipulating all of these live string sounds for Output, and crushing them until they hissed like a wind and knocked and scratched like low hanging branches. I started using these sweeping 808s that hit you in the gut like a mile of ice is cracking beneath your feet and slow melodic synths that boomed from the distance like fog horns. Once I had the initial sound design recorded, I had a world that inspired me to write these heartfelt lyrics to Lara and everything suddenly was coming out into the open and all of these emotions and layers I didnt know were there. Those are really precious and sought after moments in songwriting for me. When everything just clicks and you can get straight the emotion and feeling.”
