Manchester art rock five-piece Sylvette will be heading to Bristol’s Café Kino on Wednesday as part of a country-wide tour in support of their self-titled debut album.

Taking influence from the likes of Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel and Jeff Buckley, Sylvette use unconventional song structures and surreal yet emotive lyrics to take listeners on an intriguing journey.

The band is named after one of Picasso’s most famous muses after lead singer, Charlie, saw a painting of her in Barcelona.

Sylvette, now in her 80s, let the band use one of her paintings as the artwork for their album.

New Order guitarist Phil Cunningham has also taken Sylvette under his wing and has produced the bands four singles.

Sylvette will be at Café Kino, in Stokes Croft, on Wednesday at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £3, are available online at
