(5 votes)

Cryptic Street came to existence more than a year ago, starting out as a text message between two friends it seems before invigorating other individuals to join and ultimately form an all female pop/rock band which has been very much required in the local music scene having been lacking one for an extremely long period of time. Dedication is the key to success and just after a couple of rehearsals, Cryptic Street took to one of their premier events being a performance at the Notte Bianca where they performed a wide range of tracks including Sex on Fire and Valerie by Kings of Leon and the late Amy Winehouse respectively. This year though proves to be completely different for the group made up of Leona on rhythm guitar, Julia on drums, Chiara on bass guitar, Denise on keyboards and Janelle on lead guitars because they released their debut single entitled Indecisive. It is quite intriguing that all of the members provide vocals.

escflashmalta.com has been proud in recent weeks to bring you exclusive videos from the likes of Brooke, Funk Initiative and Muxu on two occasions and this marks the fifth official video release through our portal. We have spoken to Janelle, the lead guitarist with regards to the meaning behind the song and this is what she had to tell us; the song, on its most basic level, revolves around a two people who are in love, but one of them is indecisive. This incisiveness causes the other person to leave, and the lyrics are from the point of view of the person who is feeling guilty that she has lost her true love, but knows that regardless of her decision now, the other person has left. It also speaks about how in life we often have to take difficult decisions and we have to be mature enough to take them. It is important to note that the track was recorded and produced by Peter Borg of Red Electrick fame at Railway Studios.
In the meantime, the video has a slightly different meaning because it has a look at the individuality within each member of the band whilst also representing them as a whole. Janelle speaks that it was inspired by Foster the People's Pumped up Kicks since we felt that that type of video, without any gimmicks and any particular story line. Ultimately she adds we would present ourselves as an act to be taken seriously. Our aim is to encourage other young girls to brave their way into non-stereotypical industries. The track is currently on rotation on all major radio station including 89.7 Bay, 100.2 X FM, Radio 101, 92.7 FM, Radju Malta, Magic Radio and so forth. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest exclusive news items that we have prepared for you in the coming days before there are still a couple to be released. In the meantime, make sure to watch the debut video of Cryptic Street as directed and edited by Matthew James Borg with additional footage by Niky Chetcuti.
