Introducing Indie Rockers Sykes

Out Of Your Hands EP -

I had the pleasure of seeing Sykes perform as one of two support acts at The Garage in Islington, despite the headline act pulling out at the final hour both Sykes and Natalie Holmes ensured the event still went ahead.

Although Sykes are a four piece indie pop band from South West London, on the night only three of them performed.

They were formed in 2007 by Julie and Kristian, after several line up changes they finally found the perfect team with Will on drums and Dre on the Keyboard.

Each member of the band brings their own musical tastes and this influences the sound they produce when they perform together. By having a female vocalist into a usually male dominated genre, they hope to blend infectious pop melodies with upbeat guitar music.

They have headlined at numerous notable venues in London and have supported the likes of The Wombats and more recently they have been recording their EP with up and coming producer Cam Blackwood.

Sykes latest EP showcases Julia's strong vocals as well as awesome instrumental melodies from the rest of the band. The three tracks that are features are lively numbers, which are all equally enjoyable tunes.
