International electro synth style-y
Swirling synths coated in sugar sweet vocals, booming bass lines and kickin' beats
Currently based in Sydney, Sharfla is the project of Roncey Horton and Paul Worth, who meld electro, pop, and bass music into a sassy synthesis.
After meeting in London in the early 'oughts and becoming friends, a few years later the pair found themselves holed up in a small town in Scotland, with their creativity bursting at the seems and no way to express it. Paul's background as a pro drummer in Jazz and Funk naturally lent him being able to lay down a sick beat and dirty bassline to match. Roncey brought her baby-sweet tones and words and together they mashed together some ripping synth licks to lay the foundations for Sharfla. A move to Edinburgh saw the pair begin releasing tracks as Sharfla in 2009.
Since then, they have self released their debut EP Shiny Shiny in 2011, taking home Best Electronic Record at The Scottish New Music Awards 2012. 2013 saw Sharfla named as Soundclouder of the Day, taking their music to a whole new audience of over one million followers, and making various festival appearances. They concluded the year by self releasing their second EP On the Outside. 2014 is turning into a bumper year for releases, with a Feb single release on boutique L.A. label Synth City, and single on Kaleidosphere Records in June. Released Sept 2014 is The Bitter Pill EP, steadily making it's mark as one of 2014 stand out releases.
