System Syn has released his latest album, Once Upon a Second Act. It’s very emotionally driven synthpop. There are several ballads and mid-tempo pieces. Track six, “Weightless,” is carried by beautiful piano music.
Los Angeles-based electronic project System Syn has a new album on the way. Once Upon A Second Act will be released on June 26.
Clint Carney, the artist behind System Syn, says it’s his best album to date. The title may be a reference to a new start of sorts for the musician. He’s left long-time label Metropolis Records and will be releasing the new album independently.
We last heard from System Syn in 2019, when he released a soundtrack for the horror movie Dry Blood that was full of eerie, cinematic music. But his last song-based album, No Sky to Fall, came out way back in 2013. It included the fantastic song “Daydream from a Deathbed.”
I love the neon glow in the promotional images for Once Upon A Second Act. The album cover recalls the heart on the cover of System Syn’s excellent 2008 album, End. I’m really looking forward to this release.
