The Armagh boys treat us to a new track...
The quintet have just completed three Irish shows in Galway, Belfast and Dublin and are set to play this week in London's Bush Hall. The emerging Irish act have received considerable support from the likes of Annie Mac, Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1) as well as Clash, Other Voices, XFM, Amazing Radio, RTE, Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol).
Silences’ have been streamed over six million times on Spotify and they have become one of the most talked about acts from Northern Ireland. Speaking about the latest track, 'L.A.' writer and vocalist, Conchúr White, says:
"...L.A was written after I spent a week writing and performing in Los Angeles last year. I liked the city but it elicited a sadness. In Hollywood especially there are all these young people, the same age as me, trying to chase dreams and then there are these other people in positions of power willing to take advantage of that...Never before have I experienced such an example of pathetic fallacy. Musically, I think L.A. is the most chaotic we have sounded and that blends well with the subject matter.”
Described by the BBC as beautifully understated and extremely inventive, Silences have been compared to DCFC, Alt-J and Arctic Monkeys.
Give the new track, 'L.A.', a listen below.
