Silver Liz are Chicago-based husband-wife duo of Carrie and Matt Wagner who delight, excite and enthral with their shoegaze-meets-dream-pop sound.
We were introduced to their dreamy allure with single ‘Him’ a few months back. The pair are back with another gem ‘Hazy Daisy’, the latest single lifted from their recently released, tantalising debut LP. The single is a sonic symphony of blissed-out – yet simultaneously piercing – all enveloping spacey and shoegazey atmospherics and dreamy soundscapes. Amid the squall of noise, Carrie Wagner’s honeyed cooing is majestic and blissful, striding beautifully upon an undulating sea of fuzz, distortion and whirring guitars, off-kilter twang, and crashing percussion; percussion that comes at you like waves smashing on coastal rocks. Silver Liz have an innate ability, it would seem, to eek out a sweet spot between beauty and unrelenting noise – with style, swish and sheer volume.
For now you can check out ‘Hazy Daisy’ below & if that is to your liking, why not check out their debut LP, I Can Feel The Weight? – listen to it here.
