SYKES Expect the Best Things

South London three-piece electro pop outfit SYKES launched their new single ‘Best Thing’ last night at the Old Blue Last, London.

Sykes - Vocal is pure sweet amethyst. Cruel violet with a hint of green envy...
Sykes – Vocal is pure sweet amethyst. Cruel violet with a hint of green envy…

We had a listen:

An immense thunderclap of cardboard drums alerts us.

The vocal is pure sweet amethyst.

Cruel violet, with a hint of green envy and as cool and hard as a Siberian winter.

The synths jolt and spasm.

Magnetic surges will whiplash your mind and send it out-of-spin long enough to open-up your neurons.

But the song is poppy as well, slightly reminiscent of Echosmith’sCool Kids’ (but with a softer, Goulding-like voice).

This is honey and tonic synth-pop — sprinkled with muscular tension from the synths and ornamented with crushed petal vocals…
