“Sykoya are about to make a big impact in the moody electronic-pop world.”
-The Most Radicalist-
“Get on board with this lot, because they’re one hell of an accomplished act already.”
-Press Play OK-
“London four-piece Sykoya hit all the right spots with their debut single, “Closer.”… this is basically the kind of shit Massive Attack or Portishead would be making had they formed in 2015.”
“stunning debut release, setting their own bar high for future productions”
-Fresh on the Net-
Sykoya are making a lasting impression both recorded and live with their timeless mixture of indie electronic and dream-pop tracks. The haunting vocals of front woman, Anna Marcella sit perfectly atop her melodic synth production and the deep, engaging rhythm section of drummer, Curtis ElVidge and bassist, Joe Cross, making a sound well beyond the trio’s size. Drawing comparisons to London Grammar, Poliça, and Massive Attack, their sound ebbs and flows seamlessly from light to dark, catching listeners between wanting to dance and sit in soft reflection.
The band is back in the studio for their first full-length album after the success of their debut EP and single release, which gained attention through BBC Radio, EGH and various other radio stations around the world. The video for single, ‘Closer’ was also officially selected for both the Toronto Arthouse Film Festival and the Berlin Music Video Awards and they are slotted to continue with the previous director for their new release.
