May 12, 2022—Cypress, the new EP from rising New York-based singer/songwriter Sarah Kinsley, is set for release on June 10 via Everybody’s Music. The new music follows the release of her acclaimed 2021 EP, The King.
In conjunction, Kinsley debuts her new song “What Was Mine,” alongside an accompanying video. Directed by fellow Columbia University student and frequent creative-collaborator Lux, the video features Kinsley and her friends performing a self-choreographed dance routine.

Produced by Kinsley with additional mixing from Jake Aron, Cypress showcases the songstress’ lofty range as an artist as it veers from one shade to another and one cascading melody into the next. The new music showcases Kinsley’s versatility as an artist as she wrote, performed and produced the entirety of the EP.
Kinsley will also perform a select run of headlining tour dates this summer. Kicking off on June 6 in San Francisco, the tour includes performances at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Los Angeles’ Moroccan Lounge, Chicago’s Schubas, DC’s Union Stage and more. See below for the full routing.
Since the release of The King EP, Kinsley has been busying herself between college lectures and building an already fiercely passionate fanbase. Unsurprisingly it’s a fanbase built on discovery, but with Kinsley it’s almost solely built via social media, especially on TikTok where her music posts have garnered nearly nine million likes and over 400,000 followers. More music from Kinsley is slated to come soon as she’s gearing up to release a new body of work this year.
“Her transformative songs of growing pains and discovery share a similar
intimacy to the introverted, deeply human alt-pop of Maggie Rogers and Lorde; Kinsley’s music, above all else, is self-reflective.”
“No matter what space she’s in, her music—whether drawn from inspirations of orchestral arrangements to the 1970s—has the power, uniqueness, and individuality to live on its own.”
