Silences are young – just about old enough to creep into their local pub, by the looks of things – but the Armagh five piece have a real sense of ambition.
It's the songs, y'see. The Northern Irish group come equipped with anthems, with towering melodies and soaring choruses – reference points could well include Death Cab For Cutie and Villagers.
Recently performing shows alongside St. Vincent and Laura Mvula, Silences are ready to step out on their own.
New track 'The Sea' is a gorgeous introduction, betraying an effortlessly natural sensibility which belies their fastidious nature. Conchúr states:
"Practicality cripples us. We consistently negotiate and compromise with our anxieties. The Sea pays homage to desire over fear. It is an amalgamation of everything we have learnt and signifies an advancement in both writing and production."
