“Cybertherial II” is journey of light
into darkness and back again: Of
struggles, pain, hope, and love. Of
relationships found and lost. Of
people together and separated. Of
searching and longing in a world
mitigated by zeros and ones, but
grounded in flesh and bone.
Jonny Fallout’s second album,
the companion to his debut
“Cybertherial”, brings the listener
on an emotional adventure that
sums up the excitement,
frustration, tension, and terror of change. Of not knowing where to go and yet venturing out anyway.
Jonny Fallout weaves together synthwave with EDM to create an exciting mix of danceable pop music. He draws on diverse sonic territory and inspiration — from '80s synth pop to progressive house — to produce hypnotic, hook-laden songs. The tracks on “Cybetherial II” will catch your ear in strange and beautiful ways, with an alluring mix of dreamy vocals, driving dance beats, and

For Jonny Fallout, 2021 was a banner year for releases, with two singles, an EP, and
his debut album. Fallout released the cyberpunk soundtrack “Escape from Ultra
City” EP in May. The EP was mastered by Finnish synthwave artist Millennium Falck
and was built around a sci-fi short story that Fallout authored — a bonus download
for the Bandcamp release. That same month, Fallout, as a founding member of the
synthwave collective Polyphonic Underground, released a track as a part of the vinyl
LP, “Terrible Investments”. The LP was mastered by Dynatron with art by L’Avenue.
Fallout also released tracks on several other compilations of electronic music,
including “The Beautiful Eyes Dream Suite” from Kawsaki Audio Space, and “Time
Lapse” and “Protozoa” from Triplicate Records.
Jonny Fallout released his debut album “Cybertherial” in November 2021. Mastered
by XENNON at XENNON Studios, "Cybertherial" is a cyberpunk romance—nine songs
about longing, loving, losing yourself and finding your way in a confusing and
chaotic futuristic world mediated by zeros and ones. When you're immersed in the
dark, unsure of what's true and what isn't, how can love survive?
“Cybertherial” was re-released by Retro Reverb Records in April, 2022, with a bonus
track, a remix “Phantom Heart (Night Waves)”. Jonny Fallout’s second full length
album, “Cybertherial II” is slated for release in June, 2022.
