I was sitting here trying to figure out who The Silent Years were. Its took me a while to realize that I had written about the band in November, two years ago. Wow, glad I have that search function on my website……
Why are you looking at me like that? I don’t have the memory I used to. I’m 30. Its all downhill from here.
Here’s what The Silent Years were up to. After touring the US and UK on their first record and EP, they went back into the studio to work on The Globe; in which they ‘combined simple and sweet melodies with sharp and powerful bursts of emotion via instrument and vox’. Chris Coady (TV On The Radio, Grizzly Bear) mixed the result. For fans of Elliot Smith/Jeff Buckley/Andrew Bird you can head to RCRD LBL to get two off the new record, more at their myspace. Videos from the new album below.
