Syntax are an English electronic music group originally formed in 2002 by the musicians Jan Burton (also the band's vocalist) and Mike Tournier (ex-member of the band Fluke). They are best known for the songs "Destiny", "Bliss" and "Pride".
In 2004, Syntax released their debut album Meccano Mind on Illustrious Records. The Japanese edition included three additional tracks, entitled "Sexograph", "Woman", and "Love Song (I Wonder Why)". Meccano Mind is a combination of Burton and Tournier's different influences from rock and dance music.
Three singles were issued: "Pray", "Message" and "Bliss" (#69 UK).
Despite the originality of Meccano Mind, the band suffered poor album sales. In 2004 the group split.
Many years after the split, Syntax reformed, citing that "people were asking for more",  and are now working on a series of EPs titled Tripolar. Currently, they've finished the first episode, titled Tripolar EP and are working on the second and third episodes. Unlike their first album, their second has been released on their own independent label.
Syntax also plans to release additional material from their first album "Meccano Mind" and have already released three additional tracks: "Little Love (alternative mix)", "Peace Vibration" and "Sensation"
