Kynsy releases new track ‘Mr Nice Guy’

It’s her first single since the release of her debut EP earlier this year.

Following the release of her debut EP ‘Things That Don’t Exist’ in January, Kynsy is back with new track ‘Mr Nice Guy’.

“It’s a song about money and working and having one of those horrible bosses who tells you he’s trying to be ‘the nice guy’ while he goes through you outside on the street,” she explains. “It’s mostly based on an encounter I had in a waitressing job. I suppose there is a message in there about the power of empathy and kindness in how you deal with people.”

“The video echoes a lot of the themes in the song just pushed to an extreme level,” she adds. “Working with Dave [Fox] and Conor [Donoghue] we created a surreal world that’s really colourful but eerie at the same time. The master [me!] is on a constant power trip and forces her minions to endure some pretty awful treatment for her own gratification. To honour the positive message in the song we get to see how treating people like this will come back to bite you one way or another.”
