Press Info:
SYLPH returns with a new 4-track EP, Ancient Hole, released today on limited vinyl and digitally: see below

Sylph is the solo project of former S.C.U.M founder and vocalist, Thomas Cohen, and on Ancient Hole – his final release for 2021 – Cohen has worked with heavyweight techno collaborators Regis, Terence Fixmer and Nicolas Bougaïeff as well as renowned composer and singer Anni Hogan.

The limited signed vinyl edition of the EP is released in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory.

A short film by director Victor Gutierrez, accompanies the release. Featuring intimate and atmospheric performances of two tracks from the new EP, ‘Scripture of Love’ with Karl O’Connor aka Regis and ‘Ancient Hole’ alongside ‘Tears Fall From The Sun’ with Rrose, from the previous release Silver As It Was Before, the video brings together some of the tactile elements that inspired the project – which range from architecture to textiles.

“All holes are ancient, this is four songs from those spaces above and below. Chains, Scriptures and Ancient Holes That Touch Me Now I’m in Heaven.” – Thomas Cohen

Cohen’s intention with Sylph was to create something psychedelic and collaborative in nature, informed by notions of space and congregation, and built loosely around the concept of ‘mass’. A very different sonic beast to previous solo work, Sylph’s alien soundscapes have more in common with the after-dark scuzziness of S.C.U.M. He explains, “I wanted to fuse the singer-songwriter format of having a verse or a chorus, with a harder electronic repetition,” explains Cohen.
