Cyanca – I’m Staying Home

Newcomer Cyanca is introspective on her highly-anticipated sophomore extended play titled I’m Staying Home.

“I enjoy the blissful moments with my friends but I also love laying on my couch lounging in my peaceful thoughts all by myself. Home also represents family. When I feel overwhelmed or sad I always find myself impulsively driving down I-85 to be around them. Now that I’m older I’m learning the importance of spending time with your loved ones… We have our demons but the love is unconditional no matter what. With this project I wanted to open up more to my fans and talk about my upbringing and things I experienced as a child. From skeletons in the closet and classic cartoons, to losing a mother and my accomplishments. ‘Home is where the heart is’ and I ain’t going outside for no one.” – Cyanca
