With the release of her full-length album, The Neon Hour, B.P Valenzuela has gained traction with the fancy, exuberant internet single "Pretty Car" and her be/ep's single, the quiet and introspective "General Scheme of Things".

Sinyma consists of Madz Abubakar (aka Abdel Aziz), Cy (aka Silver Filter) and Jess Connelly.

Sinyma's performance at Wanderland is highly-anticipated to say the least.
