The Sylvias play a well observed mix of 70 s, 80 s and 90 s pop/rock that echoes American acts such as Big Star, Gigolo Aunts and the Gin Blossoms, UK bands such as Teenage Fanclub and Be-bop Deluxe and takes in newer influences along the way.

The first EP released in May 2011, recorded with Steve Ellis (worked with Babybird, Tiny Dancers and Warrior Soul to name a few) at Orion Studios in Rotherham and will be followed in 2013 by the 1st full album. The title track of their first EP The Ladder was a finalist in the 2011 UK Songwriting Contest.
