Silas Fermoy originated in Brooklyn, NY. What began as a collaboration of singer/songwriter Josh Mash and bass player Jordan Brower over a year ago has transformed into a 3 headed musical beast with the addition of Sam Ellner on guitar.
Since each band member has different influences and musical backgrounds, their music is a blend of indie rock, electro dance and rock music.

Friends since 7 years old, we all live together in bushwick and work in our basement. Basement Batman is the first name we ever came up with and we like it. Dirt pop from the brain.
“With the release of her new album, STATIC, the New York based musician, recording engineer and producer creates a world of unique trip-hop, psychedelic sounds that trigger Burtonesque images, while her distorted melodies and enticing vocals take you on a journey through your imagination.” – The Deceptive Cadence
New York City based musician, Erica Glyn, has been playing music for as long as she can remember. Her passion and drive for her own development has exploded in her latest work, STATIC. The new album was written, recorded and produced solely by Erica, with contributions from a collection of well-respected artists. She produced a unique and intriguing sound, mixing elements of trip-hop, rocktronica and a splash of psychedelic rock with her captivating vocals and commanding lyrics. Erica leans towards the unconventional, experimenting with instrumentation and tonal effects, which garner her comparisons to boundary-pushing powerhouses like Florence Welch and Fiona Apple.
Erica’s vampy, garage-pop lures listeners into “a world of the unusual and strange”, from the albums opening sultry and hypnotic track, “Commonplace”, to the warped, dream-like “Beautiful”. The poptastic, “All I Wanna Do”, hits you with an undeniable beat right off the bat, it’s commercial appeal coupled with an edgy sound and stuck-in-your-head-for-days lyrics. Each song from STATIC takes you deeper into the fantastical world of Erica Glyn, a landscape of pulsating beats, surging synthesizers, elegantly volcanic melodies, and dark, poetic lyrics.
Erica began her career working with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Bob Power, on albums by India.Arie, The Roots, Ozomatli, Citizen Cope and Meshell Ndegeocello among others. Erica has opened for Jonathan Richman of the Modern Lovers in Istanbul, and played alongside the likes of St. Vincent and Citizen Cope. Recently she has worked with Joel Hamilton (Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Sparklehorse) on projects including Candice Anitra, Watussi and Blakroc. In addition, Erica has collaborated with the likes of Blair Wells (Q-tip, Parts and Labor), John Ginty (Citizen Cope, Jewel) and Jesse Krakow (Craig Wedron, Shudder To Think, Julee Cruise).
As an engineer, she has worked with a variety of notable personalities that include Hillary Clinton, Richard Clarke (Audie Award), Stephen Colbert, Frank McCourt (Audie Award), Joan Rivers, Uma Thurman, Dr. Oz, Mariane Pearl (Audie Award), Valerie Plame, Michael J. Fox (Audie Award) and John Lithgow (Audie Award), the latter two projects both garnering Grammy nominations.
Erica also produces, composes and performs music for multimedia installation projects with live video artist Laia Cabrera and live animator Isabelle Duverger, which has taken her to Spain and France. Other notable performances by the collective are Shifting Gaze, a multimedia project realised in Times Square, October 2010, as part of Spain Art Fest´10 curated by the Consulate General of Spain NYC, Times Square Alliance and Coolture Spain.
Raised in a small town with eight hundred or so people, no streetlights & a bowl cut. Made way to the bigger towns, met some people who saw past that bowl cut. They offered to make my records & helped in ways that I won't be able to repay for years. Got a haircut. It's been a mixed bag since then.
