The Test Drive: Sykoya – Strange Night
Sykoya may be new to the scene, but are already receiving high praise for their distinctive sound and timeless mixture of indie electronic and dream pop tracks. Drawing comparisons to the likes of London Grammar, The XX and Massive Attack, the London-based trio have made a lasting impression with their rhythmic electronics, melodic synths and the ever haunting vocals of front woman, Anna Marcella. Her voice will cast you under a spell as the music ebbs and flows seamlessly from light to dark, catching the listener between wanting to dance and sit in soft reflection.
Whilst excitement builds for their upcoming EP release on 21st May, the band have earned a featured spot on Tom Robinson’s ‘Fresh on the Net’ and radio rotation around the UK and US. Their debut single ‘Closer’ is now available to stream on soundcloud.
“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”
