Emerging Canadian R&B singer Gud Cyrus, the younger brother of award-winning producer Bijan Amir, shares his new project Until Next Time — a body of work comprised of eight original tracks and two instrumentals crafted with the help of Toronto music producer OVERKNIGHT, who gifts him with moody cinematic soundscapes for the singer's heartfelt and honest lyrical stylings. Gud Cyrus started working on his music professionally in 2020 and released a couple of videos for his previous singles which serve as precursors to his debut full-length project entitled Until Next Time.
"What Happened?" opens up the project with its dark moody textures and trap drum arrangements. As the title suggests, the track questions the cause of a broken relationship where Cyrus tries to reconcile the ups and downs to no avail. The record is quite engulfing and displays Cyrus's deep vocal tone and knack for smooth melodic runs. This is followed by "Anomaly," a track ripe with atmospheric synths and arpeggios that exude pop aesthetics. On here, Cyrus shares a tale of meeting a woman who changes your life's trajectory with her strange aura. The energy goes down a bit on "Gone for A Minute" as the singer rues on his own flaws in a relationship and the several mistakes he made that contributed to the falling out. Again, he delivers a distinct performance with his airy vocal style and layered harmonies. The moody feelings continue on the upbeat and trippy track “Heart Disease," which dives into feeling physical pain from losing someone. For a song whose subject matter is dim, the production is upbeat and gets the job done.
Overall the project is pretty cohesive and consistent when it comes to the sound and subject matter. Gud Cyrus runs through a gamut of emotions and experiences revolving around blossoming love, heartbreak, loneliness, and even infatuation.
