ADVANCE R EVIEW
‘Cyborg’ is the latest release from Nashville’s Myylo, and is the definition of a good time “bop”. It’s fun, quirky, pop magic that is as cheeky as it is relevant.
Myylo has taken a life moment many of us are all too familiar with and set it against a pop overload to create an interesting and entertaining musical juxtaposition. He croons of wishing to become a cyborg and blast off into space, find god and ask her why he let his love slip away from him. Like I said, familiar.
Myylo pairs his love lorn lyrics with the most delightfully poppy tunes and melodies. There’s a sense of new age vaudevillian attitude, and maybe a Mika-esque charm, to the track. It creates mimicry of the ridiculous confusion and frustration we feel at the realization that we’ve just made our best idiotic move in love. And all we’re left with is the head scratching question “why did I do that”. It all works as one quick fire shot of adrenaline that immediately grabs your attention and carries you away.
But don’t let the title fool you, there is certainly nothing robotic or mechanical when it comes to this rocket man. So get ready to travel on a moon beam into outer space looking for lost love with Myylo.
Myylo will release 'Cyborg' on February 15th on all platforms.
