A stylistically unique band hailing from Sydney's Inner West
Ben Aylward has been a mainstay on the Sydney music scene for many years playing in the seminal band Swirl and his current project the Fabels. His use of rhythm and colour helps to define Syntax Error's hypnotic, driven sound.
Matthew Syres pushes the envelope of possible guitar sounds through the extensive use of effects and abstract playing styles, perfected through years of playing in experimental, industrial and avant-garde acts including current improvising quartet Forenzics. The resulting soundscapes and textures add greatly to Syntax Error's sonic palette, creating a truly unique and atmospheric sound.
Peter Yates is a seasoned performer having played in many successful musical outfits in recent years.
Peters playing style is both melodic and percussive and is the perfect bridge between Ben's driving guitar and Matthew's more atmospheric sounds. His creative bass lines a combination of the driven and the atmospheric.
Providing the solid backbeat for Syntax Error is Ben Eadie. Over his drumming career Ben has performed styles as diverse as blues, swamp rock, cow punk, metal, noise, Motown, hip hop, funk and more. Ben brings these influences into Syntax Error to ensure that the drums provide a solid, colourful backdrop to the bands already rhythmical, atmospheric canvas.
