FEATURES FAN FAVORITE ALT-R&B ANTHEMS INCLUDING
“GINNY” AND “AIR”
SET TO MAKE SXSW DEBUT IN 2023 + MORE UPCOMING SHOWS
Frontrunner of the alt-R&B renaissance Sylo releases his latest EP blanket. Built up of intimate ballads and slow-burning grooves, the Korean-Canadian artist meticulously puts together a 7-track portrait of his latest era of life. Taking some time to himself in 2022 to place the utmost intentionality behind his work, the end product is something that feels like a personal serenade – Listen.
Bringing together fan favorites and new releases alike, blanket kicks off with “Millions” setting the tone of the project with sultry vocals and delicate production. Moving into singles “AIR” and “Drop A Pin,” listeners are reacquainted with Sylo’s late 2022 offerings. Following a brief interlude, his most beloved track “Ginny” makes its way into the mix; almost like a capstone on this era of artistry. Rounding out with new releases “October” and “What’s Left,” Sylo satiates listeners just enough, but also leave them craving more.
On his EP release, Sylo said, “’blanket’ is synonymous with the divine feminine. Unconditional love to be cradled in, where all is forgiven. This project taught me to just sit and surrender.”

Along with today’s EP, Sylo has put together a deeply vulnerable vlog about this era of his artistry entitled how I overcame myself.
Throughout 2022, Sylo rolled out a few of the singles from blanket, including “Millions,” “AIR” and “Drop A Pin.” Each was met with praise from the likes of NPR, Billboard, Consequence and Lyrical Lemonade, and received support from Spotify’s New Music Friday, Alternative R&B and indie pop & chill editorial playlists, as well as New Music Daily on Apple Music. 2022 also saw Sylo take to the road with MICHELLE for a North American tour run.
With the release of blanket in its entirety, Sylo’s discography has hit a new point of maturation from the carefully curated intention he puts behind everything he does. Sylo will be making his SXSW debut in March and the rest of the year will see lots of new announcements to come. He also has upcoming shows in Canada in late February and early March.
