SILVERBACKS –  ” Archive Material “

Posted: January 20, 2022 in MUSIC
Archive Material by Silverbacks

‘Archive Material’ is the second LP by Dublin indie rockers Silverbacks. With a grounding in classic rock and pop from their dad’s record collection, their music also takes its influences from the likes of Television and Pavement. ‘Archive Material’ also shows a clear influence from Deerhunter and Cate Le Bon. The LP was recorded with the assistance of Daniel Fox from Girl Band.

Their second albums finds the band leaning into their early influences, delivering idiosyncratic indie-rock packed with intricate, Tom Verlaine-esque “guitarmony”. Other reference points for the record included Neil Young, Weyes Blood and – on ‘Wear My Medals’ in particular – Bradford Cox and Cate Le Bon’s collaborative record Myths 004. Where ‘Fad’ found Silverbacks focused on recapturing the live experience rather than revelling in studio experimentation, ‘Archive Material’ skillfully traverses the line between the two.

from the forthcoming album “Archive Material“, out 21/01/22.
