    Listen 2: SYKES – "Anybody Out There" - By ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino…

    SYKES sound like a dream.

    It's easy to slip right into the aural wonderland of their new song "Anybody Out There". In fact, it's the kind of artfully crafted ethereal pop that's as irresistible and inimitable as it is intelligent. The group unveils its new EP, Gold Dust, on October 20, and "Anybody Out There" unlocks the world ahead. Shimmering keys and synths entwine with faint guitars and a propulsive, yet subtle beat as singer Julia's gorgeous harmonies reach rapturous heights. As far as real alternative music goes, they're bound to surpass even the likes of Chvrches and The Naked and Famous with this blissful amalgam of majesty and melody. There is somebody out there. It's SYKES, and they're bound to be your new favorite band and one of 2014's biggest success stories.
