CYNOSURE is a band of 'four horsemen', born in the 80’s, who hail from different areas in Kuala Lumpur, with a mutual passion for all walks of music. Officially conceived in 2002, the band has undergone numerous changes in members as well as band names, eventually arriving with a name synonymous with 'being the centre of attention' – and they look to achieve this through their passion for making music.
The band originally consisted of Falique & Douglas, who had been exercising their love for music since secondary school; jamming in classrooms and studios with a handful of other individuals who throughout the years, formed the bands ever-changing lineup. The band was eventually completed and perfected with the introduction of Jo and Dwan.
Their music samples different genres from funk, to hard rock, to more mainstream pieces, all of which infuse Falique’s strong vocal range with soulful yet heavy guitar riffs, sultry yet technical guitar solos, soulful yet energetic bass-lines, and smooth yet hard-hitting drumming. And for categorizations sake, their style does tick the right boxes to see them labeled as a Modern / Alternative / Hardrock outfit.
Collectively, their goal is to make a name for themselves in the music industry, and have their brand of music recognized by all music lovers in Malaysia; and who knows, maybe the rest of the world. (Source: Facebook)
