Corlyx are taking electro music to a completely new level, melting beautifully arranged pop melodies and glamour with an affection towards the grotesque. The singer-songwriter duo Brandon Ashley and Caitlin Stokes have created a unique sound of their own which has been praised by people such as Chris Pitman of Guns’n’Roses who recently shared their music on his facebook page . The project is a collaboration of two experienced musicians who have both had a long history of dealing with personal tragedies through creating their own cosmos of musical enlightenment.
Corlyx’ first single release ‘Starlet’ is a powerful track that combines different musical influences and backgrounds of the two band members ranging from electro/goth to industrial rock while at the same time underlined by harmonies and enticing vocals. The song draws on the band’s experience with Los Angeles and a lifestyle which leads many young girls to sell their souls for fame.
The formation of Corlyx marks a shift in Caitlin and Brandon’s life. Caitlin quit her job after 12 years, cashed out her retirement fund and the couple moved to Italy to realise their dream. Brandon explains: “With our mutual love of multiple styles of music yet heavily influenced by electronic and industrial rock, the goal for our sound was to mix these elements including the fusion of dramatic pop vocals, creating something unique, a genre we call ‘dark pop’.”
The single ‘Starlet’ out on 3rd February 2016 and available to pre-order on itunes on 12th January 2016!
