EN

In view of the promotion of the album Pureland of the New York band Silverbird, the single Running/Brooklyn was released earlier this summer. Silverbird is the new project of Tim Barr, who previously was a member of Lana Del Rey’s band, supported The Bow during their concerts, studied and played together with Dizzy Gillespie protégé Mike Longo.

Silverbird is influenced by bands like Wilco, Heartless Bastards and Sparklehorse, and that means that you can expect heavy guitars, because both Running and Brooklyn build a solid wall of sound, supported by equally solid drumming. Power-rock in other words, with female voices that take the lead. Sometimes, the songs sound quieter in order to apply perspective and contrast, but then the speed goes up again with whining guitars. Running is the best track, a straightforward rock ballad, while Brooklyn beckons a little bit too much to Heart.

For fans of solid and melodic rock music (American style).

Track list:
1 Running
2 Brooklyn

Ter promotie van het album Pureland van de New Yorkse band Silverbird, is de nieuwe single Running/Brooklyn uitgebracht. Silverbird is het nieuwe project van Tim Barr, die eerder aan de slag was in de band van Lana Del Rey, in het voorprogramma speelde van The Bow en studeerde en samenspeelde met de Dizzy Gillespie-protegé Mike Longo.

Silverbird is beïnvloed door o.a. Wilco, Heartless Bastards en Sparklehorse en dat betekent dat je je aan stevig gitaarwerk mag verwachten en dat is ook het geval, want zowel in Running als in Brooklyn wordt een stevige muur van geluid opgetrokken met al even stevig drumwerk. Powerrock met andere woorden, met vrouwelijke stemmen die de leiding nemen. Soms klinken de songs iets rustiger, kwestie van perspectief en contrast aan te brengen, maar dan gaat het tempo weer omhoog en jengelen de gitaren de boel bij elkaar. Running is de beste track, een recht toe recht aan rockballade, terwijl Brooklyn net iets te veel naar Heart lonkt.

Voor de fans van stevig en melodieus rockwerk op z’n Amerikaans.

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
