SYLAS UNVEIL NEW 'LAYER' TRACK FEATURING BRIAN ENO
New UK duo bleed inventive production into their troubled alt-pop.
The choral electronics of Sylas first arrived two months back, when ghostly tracks came out backed by word that the two producers have a little history with Brian Eno, having met the producer at a singing group.
For the first time, Eno's contributed to Sylas' own material. The West London pair never especially borrowed from the legend's rulebook, but there's a perfect meeting of minds in Layer, a track that also features Jelani Blackman's stubborn, hell-banishing vocal turn.
