London’s post-punk newcomers The Silence have shared their debut single ‘Winter’
The band state:
“Lyrically, ‘Winter’ was inspired by a particularly cold evening in which I was walking home alone and finding myself lost in thought. It essentially ended up becoming an explosion of lyrical catharsis, almost an inner monologue – and I think the music perfectly supports that with its vague, dissonant sparsity – driving and frantic, yet almost daydream-like”.
The vocals are served with a heap full of attitude and a detached starkness by singer Lewis Asbury, as the band create a musical haze that pulsates and throbs with a hypnotic gritty post-punk vibe. Luca Siegel’s unhinged guitars mix with the steady rock beat from Lee Hutchings and those cool vocals from Asbury. It’s as cold and as harsh as winter yet also refreshing and welcoming.
