Bio

The project began as a solo venture for Harry Pratt, with bedroom production roots in Brisbane around 2018.

Drawing from artists like The Cure and Talking Heads - breaking into fragments of funk via textured experimental pop bands Beach House and Methyl Ethel, Syrup’s sound began to come into focus.

The project found its voice when Harry connected with childhood friend Henry Anderson, who adds a mature, sophisticated baritone vocal and complex melodic guitar capability to the production heavy tracks.

After a while structuring their path and working with talented artists such as Slum Sociable, the boys have realised their sound and it exudes confidence.

Future Islands is a good call, Dec! I love all the sounds coming from the synth and production. It rinses on through. You feel refreshed afterwards.
