Syntaks’ “Ylajali”

Ylajali is the debut full-length from Syntaks, the Danish duo of Jakob Skott and Anna Cecilia.

In Ylajali’s beautifully scorched sonic landscape, acres of drones run beneath Cecilia’s wordless sighs; Skott’s beats crunch like autumn leaves while synthesizers swell, flourish, and disappear. Songs either tramp through hazy forests until they fade into the dark (the Boards of Canada-esque “Love Camp 23”), or stack tone upon tone like translucent building blocks, building to forceful, near-operatic crescendos (the epic “She Moves in Colors”). Syntaks’ luminous Ylajali crackles with emotion and imagination, giving form to its creators’ vibrant inner lives.
