Melbourne artist Darren Sylvester launches high sheen new single Dream Or Something Like That, the first taste of upcoming second album Off By Heart, to be released on Chapter Music on October 4, 2013.
Renowned for his multidisciplinary practices in photography, sculpture, video, performance and music, Sylvester applies a polished, highly referential aesthetic to everything he does.
His musical investigations began with videos of himself performing as David Bowie or Kate Bush, and progressed to re-building the Carpenters' Los Angeles garden for a 2009 exhibition. He made his self-titled debut album as part of Optimism, an exhibition at Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art in 2008, and played his first live shows that year.
Darren Sylvester may exist in a world bedazzled by slick pop heroes, but his music is no shallow pastiche, and irony doesn't enter into it. In fact, Off By Heart is a deep, rich and dazzling album by an artist at the height of his powers.
