With a delicious interplay between rippling synths and razor sharp guitars, Melbourne-based band SILT‘s new track ‘I Always Need A Break’ is a singular delight. There is a smooth laid-back tone that reveals yearning, vulnerable lyrics. Singer Jess Polain says of the track:
Some people just have a way of making you feel small and quiet. When I find myself lost for words when it comes to expressing or standing up for myself in the moment, there is always a level of discontentment and frustration right under the surface. So this song is really cathartic in that way!
The result is something that marries the delicate, vulnerable vocals with a measured and crystalline instrumentation and delivers pure pop sensibility in the process. File somewhere between The Sundays and The Cranberries in the indie pop section:
