ZYNIC is the latest project from H.P. Siemandel and was founded in 2008 to carry the spirit of the eighties into tomorrow. Bands like YAZOO, JAPAN, DM, KRAFTWERK and OMD were always a big influence on ZYNICs way of creating his own tunes.
Starting out as keyboarder and backvocalist in several bands and projects, he soon decided to dig deeper into electronics. After years of experiments with analogue synths, things got more and more serious and all soundscapes and noises shaped into melodies.
In the end of 2008 ZYNIC got together with producer OLAF WOLLSCHLÄGER (In strict confidence, Mesh, Melotron etc.) to record a few songs. A 3-track promo cd was brought to light and a first samplercontribution followed soon. After promoting the songs via myspace the German synthpoplabel CONZOOM RECORDS discovered the tracks and ZYNIC joined the ELECTROPOP 3 compilation with an exclusive extended version of SOUL 4 SALE. During 2009/2010 H.P. wrote further songs an produced them again together with Olaf Wollschläger for his debut album.
The first single DREAMS IN BLACK AND WHITE made on the ELECTRO POP VOL. 2 compilation by ZYX MUSIC with such big names as OMD, ANNE CLARK, COVENANT, VNV NATION etc.
Now the first album FIRE WALK WITH ME will be released at conzoom records 29.4.2011 and the limited edition will feature remixes by such great artist as ASSEMBLAGE 23, IRIS, PEOPLE THEATRE and PARRALOX, so get ready for ZYNIC.
