Y’know, we might just let them.”

SYLK are an Irish female dark electro-pop duo consisting of taylor (vocals) and bebhinn (producer/instrumentalist). Their debut release of ‘Am I Alone’ in 2017, gained Spotify and Radio attention, with Nialler9 describing the duo as a ‘cross between Massive Attack & FKA Twigs’ but their connection goes back much further than this having met as teenagers at a Lady Gaga concert and connecting over their dreams of making music.

SYLK are noted for their visually energetic live shows and an underground visual identity with Hot Press Magazine classing them as ‘one of Ireland’s most exciting young acts of 2019’ and ‘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 have been one of three Irish bands selected to participate in Keychange’s 2020 full year capacity building programme led by Reeperbahn Festival in partnership with PRS Foundation and Musikcentrum Ost. Keychange is a pioneering international initiative which transforms the future of music while encouraging festivals and music organisations to achieve a 50:50 gender balance.

SYLK are currently producing their second EP and will be releasing new music throughout 2020. 

SYLK is powered by Keychange – an international campaign led by Reeperbahn Festival, PRS Foundation and Musikcentrum Öst, supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, in partnership with Tallinn Music Week, Iceland Airwaves, BIME, Oslo World, Linecheck, Ireland Music Week, SACEM, Liverpool Sound City, Way Out West, Spring Break, MAMA, Mutek and Breakout West.
