MP3 Stream: Nylo – “Take It Back”
SPIN Premieres Electro Singer-Songwriter’s New Single From Her Upcoming Mixtape Indigo Summer
Critical Praise for Nylo:
“We just might have discovered the next major R&B star.” -NYLON Magazine
“Insert a couple of bars from Drake and it could easily make it’s way to the top of radio playlists while still garnering respect from the indie crowd.” – Strictly Social
“This track feels like you’re spinning in a field with gold dust being poured over your head.”– Singers Room
“Every few years an artist comes along that stops you dead in your tracks. Disrupts you from what you’re doing. I had that moment about a year ago when clicking play on Nylo’s Soundcloud page.”- Fake Shore Drive
Even in a musical environment that brings the listener to a futuristic point, where the R&B singer-songwriter is inexorably interwoven with digital production, Chicago’s Nylo is begging to “Take It Back.” Even though she recognizes the futility of her wish, she cannot help but want to return to a time when things were still simple.
The next few weeks are bright for Nylo as she prepares to release her upcoming project Indigo Summer, which will come out on July 16th. Yet, the dark complexity will remain at the core of her musical expression–as she said, “I just want to make sure that I stay in a position that I can be honest with myself as an artist. Stay inspired, and stay making music that I believe in.”

Born and raised in Chicago, Nylo is an electro R&B singer /songwriter with roots deep in rap music as they are in classical and in Radiohead. As a child, she was always writing poems in journals and setting them to music as young as 5 years of age and didn’t realize that she was actually writing songs until she was older. Nylo caught the eyes and ears of a few key bloggers in 2012 when she quietly released her five song EP Memories Speak and been a best-kept secret since. She currently lives in California where she is putting the final touches on her next project, her Indigo Summer mixtape, which is slated for release on July 16th, 2013.
