Dublin-based five-piece Silverbacks have slowly been releasing songs throughout the last three years. This past May, they shared the utterly infectious “Pink Tide,” and in 2018 shared further two singles: “Just In The Band,” and “Dunkirk.” These plus 2017’s “Just For A Better View” were produced by fellow Dubliner and Girl Band’s bass player Daniel Fox.

Although they promised their debut album would be out by the end of this year, we still don’t have any news on that front yet. But Silverbacks are ready to share another single, and they’re doing so with another Fox collaboration called “Sirens.” This one proves just as irresistible as the other tracks, and in the way this one utilizes a propelling bass-line, it feels like a grittier take on the B-52’s deep-cut “Give Me Back My Man.” In theory, the use of three different guitars could be a bit overwhelming, however this seamless execution just proves that Silverbacks are focused and ready for bigger things.



Silverbacks are so indebted to LCD Soundsystem that James Murphy just took their TV away. In fairness, the Irish band acknowledge their influences here, and even ask the band not to sue.
