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 and music about what they don’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, Electric Picnic as well as headlining the legendary Button Factory- to name a few. Ireland’s foremost music blogger, Nialler9, described them 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 2019 release ‘All In Ur Head’ FT Daragh Locke is the first of many 2019 releases 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’.
“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
