SYLK ARE AN ELECTRONIC DUO BASED IN DUBLIN. THEY SHOWCASE A DISTORTED BLACK AND WHITE SOUND ALONG WITH NOISE, HARMONY AND VISUALS. SYLK ARE BASS HEAVY, RHYTHMIC, CINEMATIC AND LYRICALLY DARK. FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF THEIR DEBUT SINGLE ‘AM I ALONE’, SYLK WERE NAMED AS THE IRISH TIMES ‘NEW ARTIST OF THE WEEK’ AND DESCRIBED BY NIALLER9 AS A “CROSS BETWEEN MASSIVE ATTACK AND FKA TWIGS”. FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF SYLK’S DEBUT EP ‘NWYR’, THEY HAVE PERFORMED IN PLACES SUCH AS BODY&SOUL, WAH WAH CLUB & WHELANS AND HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO PLAY THE UPCOMING HARD WORKING CLASS HEROES SHOWCASE IN SEPTEMBER. SYLK HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN HOTPRESS MAGAZINE AS ONE OF THE RISING ACTS YOU SHOULD KEEP AN EYE AND AN EAR ON.
SYLK “introduce themselves with ‘Am I Alone’, a brooding electronic track with pitched vocals that rolls around like a cross between Massive Attack and FKA Twigs. It’s only the beginning but there’s very much more to come from SYLK”. – Nialler9
“Dublin based, electronic duo SYLK are ones to watch. Mark my
words. Their dark, distorted sounds, coupled with sharp, cutting
harmonies and soaring noises certainly make for one hell of an
interesting listen. They’re currently producing their debut EP and
this track will have you crying out for its release. Check it out.” – CRAIC MAGAZINE

QUOTE FROM INTERVIEW WITH GCN // THE OUTMOST:
“We want to create audio-visual experiences with our music. We showcase our music with strong visual treatments including light installations and abstract projections; this is an integral part of the SYLK identity. We draw inspiration from art forms outside of music, especially visual arts, sculpture, fashion and dance. Musically, we are inspired every day in every genre, from electro acoustic experimental new music to pop to world music. Drawing on lived experiences, we created our signature sound and carved our aesthetics through iterations of extensive experimentation. Our
sound is bass heavy, distorted, rhythmic, cinematic and lyrically dark.” - SYLK
