Sumo Cyco Release New Song ‘Vertigo’

Candian rockers Sumo Cyco have shared another new track from their upcoming album, Initiation.

“Vertigo” is another upbeat, catchy bop with an irresistible pop-inspired hook paired with heavy, gritty guitars. The accompanying video, directed by frontwoman Skye Sweetnam, features Sweetnam in a neon vibrant lab where she goes through experiments and ends up joining a few of the many gangs roaming around Cyco City.

Talking about the song and the video, Sweetnam says:

“‘Vertigo’ was written pre-pandemic, but it’s crazy how we have been living through some of the most disorienting times in our lives. ‘Vertigo’ is all about trying to hold onto your sanity and self against any outside force.

Having Kane Churko produce and co-write with us on this track was a great experience. We typically do everything at our home studio, so hanging in Vegas at the amazing Hideout Recording studio put us in a fresh new mindset to create.

The music video contains one of the most elaborate sets we’ve worked on. I guess collecting so much junk over the years has paid off! Come choose your poison and start the INITIATION!”
