The band describes their new sound as a mixture between indie and electronic music. The energy of the club, combined with solid drums, synths and snappy guitars. Synthesizers have become increasingly important within the band, which is inspired by bands like LCD Soundsystem, Foals and Northeast Party House.
Despite the new sound, the essence of Silent War is still the same. Silent war means contrast. Day and night, light and dark. “It describes the inner struggle everyone will experience at some time”, says drummer Paul Much. Lots of the lyrics are inspired by this inner conflict, and by wanting to escape the daily routine. Once on stage, all that energy really comes out and the band can completely lose itself in the moment.
Silent War will release the new EP ‘Echo’ soon. Curious about the sound of Silent War? Check out their new single ‘Neon’ on iTunes and Spotify ◑
