FoxPuppy Chris Keya is always good, but when combined with one of the best lyricists and vocalists in modern synth, it makes for powerful music, in this case, a very likable song about a very unlikable character.
Sinister 04:11
This mania, this sickness Is there no one else to blame? This radiance, this fiction She forgives all transgressions Never asking for remorse Apologies, concessions Units of force I should concede when I’ve been beaten I should conceal my darker moods I should confront my inner demons Rub the salt into the wound Through thick and thin with her I’ve been systematically sinister No need to compromise When you can see the surrender in her eyes When every act of kindness Is the product of regret My chivalry is selfish Outstanding debt I should control my own emotions I should confess my hidden truths I should contain the slow corrosion Of my moralistic youth


“Through thick and thin with her, I've been systematically sinister.”

Italian producer Chris Keya brought a hard-hitting cyberpunk aesthetic to our collaboration that pairs perfectly with the dark desperation of the lyrics.
