“Something tells us SYLK have an insatiable desire to infiltrate our airwaves and crawl under your skin. Y’know, we might just let them.” ​-​ Golden Plec

SYLK are a dark-wave electro-pop female duo based in Dublin, Ireland. Laced with an ​underground aesthetic SYLK (taylor & bebhinn) are industrial, bass heavy and lyrically dark. It is the blend of these elements that create S​YLK’​s signature genre-fluid noir-sound,​ which compliments their energetic live show where they incorporate intensive visuals. From analogue synths, distorted baritone guitar riffs & a multitude of soundscapes created from manipulating taylor’s vocals, SYLK take a ​DIY approach to their art. You will find them in a dark neon-lit bedroom creating and producing music about what they ​feel and what they do not feel.

SYLK began their musical journey with the release of ‘​A​m I Alone’​​ in 2017, this featured on Spotify’s curated playlist Spotify & Chill, leading to their music amassing over 200,000 streams. Following this was their acclaimed EP ​’nwyr’, which led to a full capacity EP launch show and standout appearances at Forbidden Fruit Festival, Body & Soul Festival, Hard Working Class Heroes 2017, Electric Picnic, as well as headlining the legendary Button Factory- to name a few.

Ireland’s foremost music blogger, Nialler9, describes SYLK as an exciting “cross between Massive Attack and FKA Twigs”, and the premiere music magazine Hot Press classing the duo as ‘having already established a reputation for themselves as being a darkly mysterious, neon-soaked duo. SYLK are doing everything musical to establish themselves as an emerging Irish act.'

SYLK​’s singles have gained mainstream radio play including​ RTÉ2 FM (track of the week & track of the day), Today FM, 98FM, FM104, SPIN1038FM, KCLR FM, & BBC NI.

"The new single (GIRL) captures their thick bass and wonderfully blunt plodding drum-pad, the pop elements also work so well via the vocals, a little hint of 90's rave thrown into the mix to give it a euphoric pow-wow, class" - Remy
