Sylas - Shore - 12"

The next release on Aesop comes from a duo called Sylas and their Shore EP, recorded between London and Frankfurt and available on limited 12” and digitally, released on November 24th…. oh, and it features Brian Eno.

To get to our sixth release and have a record that features Eno is pretty mind-blowing for us but that’s testament to Sylas, their talent and magnetism is taking them and will continue to take them in a number of unique and exciting directions.

Attention to detail and labouring over those finer points in order to achieve perfection are enough to drive one close to nervousness, when you couple that with a prolific work ethic then the results can be all encompassing if not somewhat overwhelming. Sylas fulfill these traits in abundance and with that, a depth and sincerity to their sound that already feels fully-formed yet with countless avenues for exploration and experimentation.

The Shore EP is structured around layer upon layer of vocals and a number of sonic elements, those that have been meticulously constructed, revisited, put to rest and reworked back into the state that deliver their first musical offerings. ‘Hollow’ delivers a certain fractured immediacy, an example of that meticulous focus of detail and execution, whereas lead track ‘Shore’ adopts a line straight to your core, it’s steady pace given room to breath builds and flourishes, it’s as much what you leave out as you put in.
