SYLLO, or as I would like to call him ‘Liverpool’s best-kept secret’, has just released his new single ‘Cold’. The upcoming Liverpudlian artist has ticked every single box with this release. With its catchy hooks and punchy rhythm, you will be left hitting repeat over and over again.
With subtle nods to the likes of Rag’N’Bone Man and Royal Blood, it’s safe to say that ‘Cold’ has a very familiar ring to it. Opening with isolated and echoed vocals, you are instantly sucked into the track, embracing SYLLO’s cool, yet menacing tone. And when accompanied by such gripping lyrics “When you come around, you always put me down, and you play the victim oh so well” you really do feel the sense of ‘cold’ running through the track.
SYLLO’s vocals are certainly the star of the show in this release, however, the instrumentation is still something to praise. With its core being built around deep synthesized blasts, you can almost feel the sound rippling through your skin. Likewise, the occasional explosion of the drums really dramatizes the whole song – almost like a cinematic piece. And if you close your eyes hard enough, you can picture ‘Cold’ being used in a film, with its sole purpose to add suspense.
SYLLO has managed to produce a song that doesn’t only sound great but also amplifies his talents as an upcoming artist. If that doesn’t scream talent, then what does?
