We’ve oft mentioned our love for some of the bands coming out of Ireland at the moment – Fontaines D.C., Murder Capital and the wonderful Silverbacks.
It is the latter who have released a new single, the propulsive, chugging Pink Tide, is another crackerjack of a tune brimming over with sardonic humour and sinewy twin guitars. It tells the tale of a slow unravelling of fashionable and futile revolutions in a land drowning in pomp and circumstance.
According to Silverbacks’ Daniel O’Kell the origins of the track came from “another demo, poorly named ‘Mark E. Smith Eats His Purple Crayon’. In the end we realised that the riff deserved better, and we started writing what eventually became Pink Tide.”
Marvellous. Listen here.
