In the midst of her biggest year to date, Toronto alt-pop artist POESY (Sarah Botelho) unveils her intoxicating new single “Cynthia,” accompanied by a tantalizing, Carrie-inspired music video. The release comes just ahead of POESY’s performance for the Opening Ceremonies of the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games tomorrow, August 6, at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines, ON.
Featuring the Games official anthem, “Steel Heart,” written and recorded by POESY, the rising artist will also be headlining the Closing Ceremonies on August 21, which includes a very special performance of “Cynthia.”
“Cynthia” follows the release of recent singles “Still Breathing” and “Multiply” (now at Canadian radio and #2 most added in its first week), which are all lifted off her upcoming debut full-length album, set for release this fall. “Cynthia” is the feel-good dance track of the album. With groovy bass, a killer beat, and disco-inspired strings, “Cynthia” is a fun, fresh certified jam.
“Cynthia is influenced by the 80’s. I love that it’s not taking itself too seriously,” POSEY shares. “As a big classic horror fan, I’m so happy with the video and how it really has that old school cheesy haunted prom atmosphere. I hope it’s a tune everyone puts on and dances to with their friends while they fantasize about their crush. Cynthia very much shows my scorpio moon — if I’m into you, I’m really into you. Obsession can be intoxicating.”
