It seems only right and proper that following new music from Fontaines D.C.and The Murder Capital, that another of our favourite Dublin bands Silverbacks should also share the good news of their debut album Fad, with a new single, and video, titled Muted Gold.
Taking their cues from the taut rhythms and urgent drive of late 70s punk and the discordant, unpredictable freak-outs of NYC no wave, they craft a fabulous sound spiked with triple guitar riffs, a motorik rhythm section and on-the-pulse lyrics.
Singer guitarist Daniel O’Kelly comments on the accompanying video: “The video is loosely inspired by early Stereolab music videos. It’s a collection of clips from a few band outings we had near our practice space before the lockdown began. Fun fact, Peadar used to work in a bowling alley. Despite not having played in years he scored 192 on the day we brought the camera.”
