“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 female noir-pop duo based in Dublin, Ireland. Laced with an underground aesthetic SYLK are industrial, bass heavy and lyrically dark. It is the blend of these elements that create SYLK’s signature darkwave 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 (taylor & bebhinn) 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 & music about what theydon’t feel.
SYLK began their musical journey with the release of ‘Am I Alone’, in early 2017 followed by their acclaimed EP ‘nwyr’, which led to standout appearances at Forbidden Fruit Festival, Body & Soul, Hard Working Class Heroes 2017, Electric Picnic as well as headlining the legendary Button Factory- to name a few. 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 2019 release ‘All In Ur Head’ FT Daragh Locke is the first of many for 2019 and has gained mainstream radio play from RTE 2FM (track of the week & track of the day), 98FM and Today FM and described as JOE.IE’s song of the day as a ‘dark brooding banger of a track’.
'From a pop encounter to creating black and white sound, the Dublin based electronic duo walk the line between experimentation and melody.'– State.ie

"The new single 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]
