Hot for 2019 Irish Acts: Silverbacks
The Dublin five-piece are a heady stew of jagged riffs and disaffected vocals that tip a cap to Parquet Courts and Pavement. Last September’s ‘Just In The Band’ single was a massive statement of intent from the art-punks, which saw them dive further down the rabbit-hole to explore the theme of false idolatry. Produced by kindred spirit Daniel Fox from Girl Band, dizzying, Hot Snakes-y guitars and galloping rhythms are the order of the day, as this former bedroom project step away from their indie upbringing and get into a seductive groove.
HEAR: ‘Just In the Band’.
SEE: Silverbacks play Belfast’s Menagerie on February 3 alongside Bouts and Hot Cops.
