Three and a half years later, the Nialler9 Podcast has been revived from the dead and appropriately, the second episode arrives at Halloween time so the theme is synthesizers in all their spooky John Carpenter-inspired glory, unsettling rhythms and Samhain disco.

Sylk are a new Irish electronic duo who are set to release their debut EP in May.

Bebhinn Mc Donnell (producer) and Taylor Doyle (vocals) introduce themselves with ‘Am I Alone’, a brooding electronic track with pitched vocals that rolls around like a cross between Massive Attack and FKA Twigs. It’s only the beginning but there’s very much more to come from Sylk.

Catch them live this Monday at WeBloom in the Workman’s Club.

The song is also on the New Irish Music playlist.
