SYLK are an Irish electronic duo consisting of taylor (vocals) and bebhinn (producer). Known for their visually energetic live shows & homemade productions SYLK create darkwave electronic pop music. Their story began with the release of ‘Am I Alone’ in 2017 which gained Spotify, Press 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 while at a lady gaga concert and connecting over their dreams of making music. As teenagers taylor & bebhinn were living in small towns on separate sides of Ireland and it wasn’t until late 2016 that they both moved to Dublin and SYLK began.
Inspired by fashion, art, & the avant-garde the female duo are laced with an underground visual identity and a sound that is distorted, manipulated and lyrically dark. Ireland's premiere music magazine Hot Press have classed the ‘darkly mysterious, neon-soaked duo’ as being ‘one of Ireland’s most exciting young acts
“One of Ireland’s most exciting young acts, a brilliantly atmospheric brand of dark electro.”
Something tells us Sylk have an insatiable desire to infiltrate our airwaves and crawl under your skin. Y’know, we might just let them.
