Meet our MxT2019 Featured Artist, SYLK, 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.
