Cypress & Co have released a new single titled, “Underworld.” “Underworld” has a melodic, ethereal sound with a catchy beat that has you humming along almost instantaneously. The single has a groove, jazz, synthesized beat with rock elements blended in for a truly unique and interesting sound. When the bridge kicks in with the lyrics “don’t leave me here, I’m trapped in the underworld,” it will be a line that will replay in your head. In this single, you can definitely hear their musical influences, such as twenty one pilots and Billie Eilish.
Cypress & Co’s purpose is to create music “that empowers you to grow strong in the face of adversity.” Their name derives from that purpose statement because the cypress tree is a tree that will grow and thrive even in extreme conditions, from the swamp to extreme heat. Vocalist Rochelle DeMint said that the cypress tree is a symbol of strength, and that their music is meant to show strength in the struggle. They are a band that addresses mental health, depression, and anxiety as key issues through their music to help others “see that they too can thrive despite the worst circumstance.”
