‘Hollow’ is their first offering, a dramatic and intriguing listen. Obvious comparisons may be drawn to stars from the experimental electronic landscape such as James Blake and the aforementioned SOHN, but who really cares if it sounds this good:
We don’t know a lot about Sylas, besides the fact that one half of the duo Fred Gibson, has been perfecting his production skills under the watchful eye of no other than Brian Eno. He helped produce ‘Someday World’, Eno’s collaborative album with Karl Hyde. He’s also rumoured to have worked with Sinead O’Connor and Damon Albarn, amongst others.
Not to mention the 22-year-old’s other project Count Counsellor, a band he’s in whose blend of hip-hop and atmospheric electronica is definitely worth your time.
Ones to watch, wethinks.
