Their album, Turbulence, garnered a AAA top 40 radio single and a deals with 429/Savoy/Warner Bros. in the U.S. and Measured Records in Scotland.

“Saucy Monky shares a lot of the qualities of pop’s classic female-fronted bands — Irrepressible melodicism and smart lyrics...”
Early 2019 finds Cynthia touring solo and prepping to record her next record, as The Secret Things are on temporary hiatus. She and band members Steve Giles and Dan Nelles closed out 2018 by signing with Loud Kult (Swedish indie distributed by The Orchard), for a one-off licensing deal. Their latest release “Keeper” is a shout out to the #MeToo movement. This track explores the contrasting realities of the “glamorous life" and the cycle of abuse by Hollywood men in power and the starlets that cross their paths. Other TST highlights include a benefit concert for the trans community in LA, multiple singles and videos and the trio's first Canadian appearances. TST's music was played on CBC Radio 2, they performed at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern and on The Strombo Show, hosted by beloved DJ George Stroumboulopoulos.
