The Irish Times: 8 New Bands to Catch (Including SYLK)

Hard Working Class Heroes festival: eight new bands to catch

 

At their recent Sounds From A Safe Harbour show in Cork, producer Bebhinn Mc Donnell and vocalist Taylor Doyle (along with live visuals from Fiach), Sylk displayed a jagged yet youthful enthusiasm for creating their own sound and light world informed by dark-edged electronica in the style of FKA Twigs. It’s early days but Sylk are on to something different. – Niall Byrne

SYLK EP ‘nwyr’ LAUNCH // DISCOTEKKEN

SYLK x Discotekken // Wah Wah Club // 30TH APRIL // we are super excited to announce that on this day we will be releasing our EP ‘nwyr’. We are so honoured to collaborate with Discotekken for our launch. The night will involve a live performance of ‘nwyr’ and dj sets by Discotekken. We’ve had some of our favourite nights out at Discotekken events over the years and to be working creatively with them for the last few weeks on this project has been surreal. Everyone who attends our Launch can stay for Woweembeem directly afterwards, running until 3am. “It’s Discotekken’s new party focussing on afrobeat, latin & rare grooves from the ’70s, ’80s and beyond. Papa Lou will be digging deep to keep everyone dancing all night.” MUSIC. INSTALLATIONS. SMOKE. GLITTER. WAREHOUSE VIBES. We are living for this night and you wont want to miss it, we hope to see you all there and thank you for your continous support.
