'Free the Cynic’s sensational new six-song EP’s a huge, swaggering thing of melodic-rock beauty that never seems to question its purpose or path.'

'Post Iconica bursts with blazing energy and artful precision'

'Throwing the rule book out the window, the Calgary four-piece creates a dominating, distinct sound of their own. Rock n’ roll, alt-rock and blues are the discernible genres on the release, a six-track that bleeds hints of jazz and beyond. Jangly guitar riffs, lead singer Rich Paxton’s turbulent but tamed vocals, a song inspired by a menial work position—'Post-Iconica' is as wonderful as it is eclectic. Creating electric rhythms that have listeners captured to each note is not an easy feat, from the dreamy “Wine & Debris” to the rough-edged “Let it Burn.”
