Highlights in the last year have included performances at Glastonbury, SXSW and Latitude as well as their first UK and Irish tours. In addition Silences was asked to take part in the British Council’s “UK Music On The Go’ advertising campaign. This initiative promoted the act's music and image across four major cities in China alongside acts like ‘Young Fathers’ and ‘Prides’. At the conclusion of the campaign Silences’ was voted as the most popular act.
Described by the BBC as beautifully understated and extremely inventive. Silences songs range from delicate acoustic ballads to dynamic alternative rock. Comparisons have been drawn to DCFC, Alt-J, Lana Del Rey and Arctic Monkeys.
