We don’t typically cut-and-paste information from a press kit or what can be found on an artist’s various social media sites, but the backgrounder for Sillyboy is too good to pass up.
Sillyboy lives in an old detached house in a working-class suburb of Athens next to the national railway. This urban landscape feeds the aesthetic of his music. Temperamental lyrics, bass-driven grooves, retro-pop synths and melodies are his tools. He began as a composer for TV commercials, shows and movies while he also produced records for other Greek artists.
Last year, Sillyboy released his debut full-length, Stalker. It’s ten tracks of ethereal electronic and ambient music that mixes pop, R&B, and even some funk elements. The lead single, “On and On”, is an excellent introduction to the Greek producer’s creativity. It can be best described as funky electronic. The hypnotic sound resembles the early works of Twin Shadow and How to Dress Well, who have perfected using electronic as a base for the soul, R&B, and funk-infused music.
Stalker can be heard in its entirety on SoundCloud. The title track is below along with the video for “On and On”.
