“An experimental and evolving sound that unsettles and conjures.” – Ear To The Ground Music

“Waiting in the Bliss”
This track may not seem like a typical rock jam like some others, but it is a phenomenal song. It reminds me a bit of Led Zeppelin’s slower songs. There’s a clear and pointed emotionalism in the song. The instrumentation includes strings to go with the traditional rock style. There’s nothing traditional about the melody, though, presenting an experimental and evolving sound that unsettles and conjures.

Sylvette are a Manchester based Art Rock band taking influence from the likes of Neutral Milk Hotel, Jeff Buckley and Radiohead to create an imaginative and powerful sound. They use unconventional song structures and surreal yet emotive lyrics to take listeners on an intriguing journey. In just over 3 years as a band they have supported The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, had their single featured in the Q Magazine online and headlined the unsigned night at the O2 Ritz in Manchester. They have recorded a full length debut LP ‘Waiting In The Bliss’ that was released in the spring of 2018. The artwork for the album was painted by Sylvette Lydia David (Picassos famous muse) who inspired the band name. Charlie (the singer and guitarist) got in touch with the now 83 year old Sylvette and they became friends. She kindly gave the band permission to use her artwork free of charge for their debut album. The band have received support from BBC 6, CLASH magazine, BBC introducing and New Order. .
