Sylph - Silver As It Was Before

Buzz Buzz Buzz

Silver As It Was Before by Sylph

High order electronic Pop

This riveting debut EP from former S.C.U.M founder and vocalist Thomas Cohen is electronic Pop of the highest order. The thundering kick drum full of radio static offset by Cohen's angelic vocals on In The Morning Light is hella catchy, reminiscent of prime Tiga, while teaming up with Terrence Fixmer on Braid proves to be a fine match, elevating his work even further. Third track Tears Fall From The Sun offers contrast with a quality Ambient beginning but falls a little short when Cohen's nasally vocals kick in.

This is the first of a planned series of releases by Sylph this year, with further collaborations expected from Regis, Nicolas Bougaïeff and Rrose.
