MARK THE END OF AN ERA AND RELEASE ‘GENIUS’ NEW SINGLE
‘GENIUS’ is the debut single from the forthcoming Silent Feature feature length – Be It All You Got, scheduled for release in late 2018.
The song’s playful blend of Australiana jangle-rock served with its satirical lyrical themes, brings a brazen shift in mood from the band’s Queensland Music Award-nominated release of 2016 House of Thieves and previous album This Old Leather Heart. Consequently, the band has marked the end of an Era – dropping it from their name and adopting the more concise moniker for this first release.
‘GENIUS’ was recorded at Ian Haug’s Airlock Studios, mixed by Ben Tolliday at Mt Echo Studios in LA, and mastered by ARIA-award winner Jonathan Burnside in California, capturing the raw excitement and energy of a song littered with strong instrumental and vocal hooks. All the while playfully boasting “I used to be a Genius, yeah but now I’m just an ordinary guy”.
PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR SILENT FEATURE:
“An EPIC and galloping tune. I love how it opens up to that great crescendo toward the end.”
*Dom Alessio – triple J unearthed
“I would have to say, the best group of musicians to come out of Brisbane..”
“The results are striking, a dark and feverish kind of folk-pop seasoned with creaking old synthesisers, backwards tapes, brass or whatever else they could get their hands on”
“Silent Feature set the stage alight with their raw energy and poetic music, as they paraded through their set”
**Lizzy Green – faster louder
