LP released: Aug 19, 2022
Syko Friend's third LP, 'The Code,' wanders endless margins and endless centers, reveling in every sound, every feeling, every word. It balances the vastness of choice with the certainty of an individual path. This path belongs to Sophie Weil, the sole member of Syko Friend, who acknowledges this swing of extremes, this movement from the center to the edge: "I do want people to understand what's going on," she affirms, "but I know it's weird."Weil plays guitar like it's a faucet, the warm roundness of bathwater just a half-turn from a furious scalding, another full turn from the whole-body shiver of winter rain.
