In April 2013 The David Nelligan Thing released the album 'Dark Matters', a staggering indie-pop-folk-country-rock mishmash accompanied by some surreal and charming home-made music videos. This E.P. of new synth and beat-based songs was released in August 2013, strikingly different from 'Dark Matters' and other previous releases in style and tone. These synth/beat/loop-based songs include an exhilarating musical reinterpretation of Shakespeare's poem 'Who Is Silvia?' which, along with the keyboard-led arrangements, provides the inspiration for the E.P. title 'Who Is Synthia?'
