Silences, led by singer and songwriter Conchúr White (with the line-up completed by Christopher Harbinson, Breándan White, Jonathan Downing and Michael Keyes) – have received critical acclaim for their two previous EPs ‘Nevernames’ and ‘Sister Snow’ from the likes of Annie Mac, Huw Stephens & Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Earmilk, Clash, All Things Go, Nialler 9, and have been streamed over a million times on Spotify, along with performing alongside the likes of Hozier, St Vincent, Laura Mvula and more.
Their third EP, ‘Luna’, co-produced by Tommy McLaughlin (SOAK/Villagers) and Declan Legge (SOAK/Ciaran Lavery), will be released on April 15th. With comparisons drawn to the likes of Death Cab for Cutie, Jeff Buckley, and Villagers, Silences look set for a very fruitful 2016.
Speaking on the release of the new single, frontman Conchúr said: “‘There’s A Wolf’ is about the menace of nostalgia and how our minds can reinterpret our memories and feelings to make us miss something that we never cared that much for. Musically, I believe it’s a massive progression for the band.”
The musical progression can definitely be heard throughout the new EP, and ‘There’s A Wolf’ stands as the perfect introduction. Staying true to their successful formula of delectable harmonies and melodies, combined with folk-inflected acoustic guitars – Silences‘ music is grandiose; it’s high-reaching, and gloriously ambitious.
The lyrics appear to reference the lure of a wolf despite its danger. Perhaps something from our past, that may have attractive qualities, but is ultimately bad for us.
Silences‘ new EP ‘Luna’ is set for release April 15, 2016.
