SYKES are a four-piece indie pop band from South West London UK. The band was formed back in 2007 by Julia and Kristian; three drummers and three bassists later, we found our perfect line-up in 2010 with Will on drums and Dre on keyboards.
Each of them have their own distinctive music taste which influences the sound they create together as a band. Bringing a female vocalist to a genre that is often male dominated, they hope to blend infectious pop melodies with upbeat guitar music.
SYKES have headlined gigs at a number of notable London venues (such as the Putney Halfmoon and the Natural History Museum) and provided support to artists as varied as The Wombats, Sam Beeton and Egyptian Hip Hop. After releasing their first 5-track EP early 2012 which was recorded at a student college, they came across producer Cam Blackwood (CSS, Take That, Florence + The Machine, Reverend and The Makers). Cam recorded and produced their 3 track EP "Out Of Your Hands" which was released Jan 2013.
