Sumo Cyco: No Thank You


Vince really likes Sumo Cyco and I really love Vince. So I’m going to be vv respectful here:

Now that I’ve experienced both Sumo Cyco’s last single, “Bystander,” and their new single, “No Surrender,” I have determined that this band is not for me.

Having said that, I am very happy for you if you enjoy their music.

Just please do it with headphones.

You can enjoy or not enjoy Sumo Cyco’s “No Surrender” at your leisure via the below music video. Says singer Skye “Sever” Sweetnam about the clip:

“’No Surrender’ is about the struggle to be your authentic self, living your truth and battling inner demons. The music video depicts four characterized versions of myself representing different sides of my personality and how I see myself. They’re lurking in the darkness over my shoulder, always questioning each other’s decisions.

“The song is written from the perspective of the voice or voices in my head. Telling me to run one moment and another to hold my ground and another to fight back. In between some epic rocking out with the band, I wanted the viewers to visualize the colorful juxtaposition that goes on in my mind.”

“No Surrender” will appear on Sumo Cyco’s new album, Initiation, which comes out out May 7, 2021 via Napalm Records. Pre-order it here.
