Other influences the band have cited include avant-pop groups Stereolab and Broadcast, along with evident echoes of Wand, Tame Impala, and Crumb in their music as well.

SYLVAINE Shares New Song Collaboration with CARPENTER BRUT
SYLVAINE comments on the collaboration: “Working with Carpenter Brut was a very inspiring collaborative experience, allowing me to explore some musical territories I hadn’t been much within before. Having a lot of creative freedom on the track, I decided to work with the duality between very legato, almost ghostly sounding vocal lines, along with more rhythmic, strict background vocals towards the end. I had so much fun working on this track, both lyrically and vocally speaking, and feel very grateful to have been part of such a killer project, alongside so many incredible musicians. Do yourself a favour and give this record a spin”
