Sylas Dean

«Agony» is the latest addition to his catalogue that explores the duality of the highs of love vs the dark realities of heartbreak. Never one to shy away from the absurd, Dean intentionally designed all imagery around the single to draw attention to the colourful and «picturesque» moments captured but [...]

A parallel to the delusion of convincing oneself that something can be good even as it crumbles right in front of you.

Following the success of his June single «Real» to the tune of synth driven power pop Sylas Dean takes a turn for the macabre with his follow up record «Agony». A bass heavy acoustic electro track with grim lyrics and a killer hook.

Bubbling to the surface of the underground power pop scene among similar artists such as Slayyyter and Kim Petras, Sylas is the latest creation of the hyper pop machine to give us all the grit of a rock vocal encased with a heavy electro-dance influence.

An east coast native Dean is the product of self-reinvention, trailing from a small town in New England where he set his sights on Hollywood back in 2018 to create a vibrant caricature that felt as loud and eccentric as the music.

In collaboration with the lead producer Rebbel and engineered with Ivan Fiallos Zambrano from Jason Derulo’s «Colors».

I took a listen to Sylas Dean’s «Agony» and it’s a great pop tune you don’t want to miss-out on! It’s a perfect followup single release to «Real»!

«Agony» is out Friday the 13th this August!
