Syntaks’ music evokes an infinitely expanding landscape of papery beats, sighing voices, and hills of sublime noise. Copenhagen, Denmark-based Jakob Skott has been making music as Syntaks for years, releasing a handful of solo albums, and collaborating with friends on outside projects. In April of 2006, Skott began making music with Anna Cecilia, first adding her vocals to a track on his 2006 album Awakes, and eventually integrating her as a full-time partner. With the addition of Cecilia, a new era of Syntaks was born, fusing Skott’s densely textured production with Cecilia’s airy, wordless soprano and intuitive songwriting.
In Syntaks’ world, dreams and reality blur into a melodic haze, and nothing is as it seems. The duo’s debut Ghostly full-length, Ylajali, arrives on November 3rd.
