Following the success of their acclaimed debut album and recent UK shows, British indie/electro band Silhouettes release their new single Sacrifice on November 10th as a free download. Taken from the Ever Moving Happiness Machines full-length, the track is an inescapable temptation and weave of the imaginative electronic and indie pop revelry the band has swiftly become renowned for. It is a treat for ears and unashamedly seduces with every vocal caress and melodic kiss.
Formed in 2008, the Wolverhampton quintet of Nathan Till (vocals, guitars), Jay Cuthill (guitars, samples, keyboards, production), Ben Blewitt (keyboards), Ben Dargue (drums), and Jay Roberts (bass) has increasingly earned a potent following and attention for their sounds and live performances. Early EPs awoke many to their impressing emergence but it was the single Gold Tag which on a wave of new invention and evolution in the band’s sound sparked a broader spotlight, one subsequently pushed much further by Ever Moving Happiness Machines. It was an album which instantly lit a fire of attention which is bound to be stoked again by the release of Sacrifice.
Opening on a wash of warm and magnetic keys veined by resonating beats and pulsating shadows, the song brings an Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark air to its celestial blaze of electronic colour. It is a dramatic coaxing elevated once the celestial tones of Till merges with the sultry climate. His delivery shows it is unafraid to mix things up as the vocalist subsequently adds a little post punk shadow to his narrative. Haunting and bracing with a golden stream of sun fuelled melodic endeavour across its transfixing atmosphere, the song is as unpredictable and keenly inventive as it is persistently warm and mesmeric.
If Silhouettes’ album has evaded your attention until now there is no finer a gateway into its majesty than Sacrifice. It is a potent taste of what is in store within Ever Moving Happiness Machines but only a hint of its rich adventure.
Sacrifice is available as a free download from November 10th @ https://soundcloud.com/integrityrecords/silhouettes-sacrifice-single-edit
