Dublin based indie/garage outfit Silverbacks have returned with a new single ‘The Pink Tide’.
This latest offering adds to what’s been a pretty productive year so far; releasing their second album, Hot Bath, back in January and Record Store Day single, ‘Through A Curtain’, in April. New track ‘The Pink Tide’ continues to plough a similar furrow; however their the slanted Pavement inspired sound does a dance with the post-punk tones of Television and a touch of Talking Heads. Cliched as it sounds, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It retains their lo-fi garage roots, honing and refining their sound with buzzing exuberance, some scintillating riffs and guitar work and when the solo kicks in at the 2:30 mark, it is sheer magic. All a rather perfect backdrop for Dan O’Kelly’s low-toned and world weary vocals, which remain an undoubted highlight. Great stuff as per usual.
