New From Silverbacks

Irish art punks Silverbacks have shared an excellent new track – Just In The Band – it is out tomorrow on PK Miami.

Produced by Daniel Fox from fellow Dubliners Girl Band (when will we get something new from them?) the single has the same nagging unease as previous (outstanding) single Dunkirk with taut drums and unrelenting bass underpinning seasick guitar arps and Daniel O’Kelly’s blunt commentary on the ‘problems down the back’.

There is something of Parquet Courts about them – that all too rare ability to match a frazzled grove with a pop sensibility and a “so what” attitude, and then expertly combine it all into something that is just as much sharp social commentary as it is mosh-pit dynamite.

Enjoy!

 

Brilliantly delivering their own louche take on NYC-indebted rock, Dublin art-punks Silverbacks are releasing their new single Dunkirk today via their own PK Miami Records.

Underpinned by an insistent, nagging bassline and creepy crawly guitar lines, it provides the ideal vehicle for frontman Daniel O’Kelly’s stream of consciousness ramblings about martial strife, the perfect sandcastle and spotting a con artist when he sees one. Produced by Girl Band’s Daniel Fox, the track lurches forth, pressure building from the undulating backbeat and layers of skronking guitars accenting Daniel’s increasingly frazzled yelps before finally collapsing into a sugar sweet coda.

Loving this one – have a listen.
