With her latest effort, Silvair poses as an intriguing enigma ready to create captivating conceptual pop for a new generation. - Line of Best Fit

Dark and ethereal, Syd Silvair’s debut EP, titled “Reverie,” captures the spirit of a moonlit disco. The four-piece debut marks a strong opening for the musician and mystic, whose divine energy seeps into every song. - Flaunt

...St-Etienne-as-possibly-produced-by-David-Lynch sonics... - BlackBook

Paging everyone in pop music: if you don’t know singer/songwriter and escapist Syd Silvair yet, you will feel her enchantment soon...Inspired by the feminine mysticism of Stevie Nicks, her songwriting is unsparing, bold and centered. Silvair’s velvety voice calls out messages of the rich visuals that inspire her, shimmering atop lush and groovy rhythms. Her melodies are undeniably catchy, like a golden spell. - Wild Honey Pie

...As dark as it is light. As poppy and commercial as it is unique and localized. The blend of her influences paired with her highly intuitive method makes Silvair’s songs feel like something that is familiar, yet new. - American Songwriter

With a voice as full of regret and studied pain as hers, Silvair could find it hard to avoid comparisons to Lana Del Rey. But there’s a lot more going on here than LDR’s enjoyable but arch sound. Not vampish, more Stevie Nicks at her most mysterious, Silvair has a vibrant, vital, more urban quality to her voice for one. - Analogue Trash

Silvair's enchanting songs mark the crossroads between life and death or at least a point of limbo between a heaving dancefloor pumping out disco and a haunted graveyard of whispers...Calling on the roar of '70s psychedelic rock for inspiration Silvair filters this through pulsing beats and soaring vocals, juxtaposing old and new, the heavens and earth. A unique talent, Silvair is an artist who is unafraid to get lost in her concept and really live through her music. - Line of Best Fit
