Dublin based duo SYLK will be launching their new EP ‘nwyr’ online and in person on 30th April. And yes, you are invited!
SYLK, formed in 2016, are an experimental electronic experience. Band members Bebhinn McDonnell (sound) and Taylor Doyle (vocals) showcase a distorted black and white sound along with noise, harmony and entrancing visuals. Think bass heavy, rhythmic, cinematic and lyrically dark.
Following the release of their debut single ‘Am I Alone’, SYLK were named as the Irish Times ‘New Artist of the Week’ and described by Nialler9 as a “cross between Massive Attack and FKA Twigs”. With performances so far in 2017 at We Bloom in the Workmans Club and F-Festival, there are many more to announce, including Irish festivals and a support slot in Whelans.
SYLK will officially launch their self-produced EP on all major online music platforms on April 30th (iTunes, Spotify, to name but two!) followed by a live performance of the EP in collaboration with creative club promoters Discotekken at Wah Wah Club in South William Street.
What to expect at Wah Wah Club, you ask?
– Warehouse feels.
Need we go on?
Doors open at 8pm, starting off with Discotekken DJs, playing until SYLK’s one hour live show, followed by the after party until the wee hours.
Be warned. The basement in Wah Wah is really small, 100 people tops and it’s full, so grab a cheap ticket on Eventbrite and head down for 8pm on the night. Everyone who attends is welcome to stay for Woweembeem directly afterwards, running until 3am. This is Discotekken’s new party focussing on Afrobeat, Latin and rare grooves from the ’70s, ’80s and beyond.
Papa Lou will be digging deep to keep everyone dancing all night
