The powerful fusion of melodic and intricate djenty riffs with skilful vocal choruses are showcased in the ferocious metallic storm that is Windrunner's sound, most especially notable in this new single 'Cyan'. The track opens with the band's distinct groovy and heavy instrumentation and builds up tension by harnessing brutal screams paired with lush cleans. The action packed and visually stimulating music video follows the story of an animated hero crew, parallel to a futuristic video game/anime, to accompany the energy and intensity 'Cyan' brings.
