Formed in the summer of 2022 in the forest; Sylvan Weekends brings together Matthew, Freya & Daniel. Unified vocals from co-writers/producers Matthew & Freya lend a nostalgic feel - one octave up resonates at twice the frequency & both voices together cut through with emotional resonance. The addition of synths & clever percussion drive the songs & make you move. The band are born from contradiction: London meets wilderness, tech meets off-grid, folk meets electro. The ethos of contrast is seeded through every track and lyric. Nobody fits perfectly into one box and neither does their music.
Assigning a genre is tricky - but getting a tune stuck in your head won’t be.
