SYKES - SINGLE REVIEW

Sykes - Gold Dust 
Sykes - Gold Dust

Release Date: 14th July 2014

Unsigned London trio Sykes have a new single coming your way in the form of 'Gold Dust' and I think you might just like it. If you imagine the likes of Foals or the Maccabees with the dance elements of Delphic and the pop savvy of Bombay Bicycle Club then you're getting close. The guitars ping like raindrops on a lake of electro melodies while the simple but effective beats chip away in the background. The piece de resistance, though, is the voice of front woman Julia which swoops and soars with the best of them but she also has character to her voice that puts her in a league with the likes of Kimbra or Alison Goldfrapp. There is definitely something a little bit special about these guys and I'd love to see them recreate this sound live so I'll be keeping an eye out for some Westcountry gigs....hint hint.
