“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.
The industrial electro-pop duo are visually intense and lyrically dark. Inspired by fashion, art, & the avant-garde, SYLK began their musical journey with the release of ‘Am I Alone’, followed by their acclaimed EP ‘nwyr’, which led to standout shows at Forbidden Fruit, Body & Soul, Electric Picnic Festival & Hard Working Class Heroes - to name a few. Ireland's foremost music blogger, Nialler9, described them as a “cross between Massive Attack and FKA Twigs”, & the premiere Irish 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 industrial-pop sound is inspired by forms such as Musique Concrète where sounds are intentionally obscured and manipulated from their original source, this is reflected heavily with the production of noir-club track ‘All in Ur Head’, FT. artist Daragh Locke where the vocal line has also been used to create most of the sounds & textures that can be heard in the background of the production by extensively manipulating, micro-editing, splicing, looping & filtering. This track is the first of many 2019 releases and has gained mainstream radio play from RTE 2FM (track of the week) , 98FM and Today FM.
SYLK's music is also gaining interest in the fashion industry with their music being featured in Brown Thomas season campaigns and NCAD fashion films.
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]
