Occupying a space between dusty nostalgia and futurist longing, Sylvan Paul is an immersive marriage of rock and electronic that juxtaposes old and new. His cross-genre versatility bridges the precision and power of contemporary production with the raw attitude and tone of bygone rock eras. Punctuated by a renegade-tinged baritone, his numbers are fierce and calming, psychedelic and immediate, and if you’re not careful, pretty damn groovy.
His new single, “Back To You,” is yet another golden track in this young artist’s arsenal. Laced with a trippy vocals, blues-y guitar riffs, and an insatiable bass groove, Sylvan Paul yet again puts his songwriting and production talents on display for a song that feels like an instant classic. Think if Toro y Moi and Empire Of The Sun had a baby. The instrumentation, the songwriting, the theme, the story, all of it is rich and all of it works in harmony to render an experience that stands out with its generous, all original design.
