Who: Irish post-punk-pop band who released
their superb debut LP FAD last year.

New single: WEAR MY MEDALS
Their first for Full Time Hobby

Turn Up The Volume: I just love this thrilltastic Irish hit team.
Their new high-speed Devo-like riff-crazy steamroller makes your
adrenalin production explode, makes your head spin uncontrollably
like madmen Beavis and Butthead do when they go berserk, and leaves
you out of breath when the storm is over. Even the band has to slow
down with a long drum rolling and flute outro, while singer Emma softly
ho ho ho ho’s out.

Stunning strike! Silverbacks win gold medal.

Irish Engine SILVERBACKS Unleashed New Steamrolling Single ‘SIRENS’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

19 November 2019

Ireland is exploding! Fontaines D.C. and The Murder Capital both dropped an awesome debut album, chainsaw noiseniks Girl Band launched their second, bone-crushing LP a couple of weeks ago and flaming 5-piece SILVERBACKS keeps on producing ace single after ace single this year.

After cracking cuts Pink TideJust In The Band and Dunkirk, here’s another sharp-edged and speedy missile called ‘SIRENS’ that gets under your skin faster than you can say ‘Boris Johnson is a moron‘. Its non-stop repetitive Krautrock-ish beat, its guitar combustibleness and steamrolling vigorousness will drive you entirely bonkers.

Dublin’s SILVERBACKS Rattle Roaringly On New High-Speed Stroke ‘PINK TIDE’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

17 May 2019

When Turn Up The Volume! heard SILVERBACKS for the very first time, last November,
with their thundering riff stormer ‘Just In The Band’ he screamed from the top of his
roof that the meanwhile successfully exploding FONTAINES D.C. gang wasn’t the only
Irish group to keep your eyes and ears on. And now with new smoking single PINK TIDE this also Dublin based squad confirms why we should all follow their future sonic moves.

Silverbacks‘ songwriter Daniel O’Kelly talked about the new cut in a press statement: “The song is about trendy and stylish revolutions that lack substance and never fully materialise. Musically, we had been messing around with the outro guitar riff for a few weeks which we initially attached to another demo, poorly named ‘Mark E. Smith Eats His Purple Crayon (note TUTV: c’mon this should have been the most hilarious song title of the year!) In
the end we realised that the riff deserved better, and we started writing what eventually
became Pink Tide.”

Pink Tide is an unstoppable walloping stroke that develops dashingly from the motorik bass/drums intro on and keeps on rattling until your head spins itself entirely dizzy. Midway the cutting parlando vocals almost explode and then makes way for an insanely guitar driven volcanic finale. This band nailed it big time! Again! Give us more! ASAP!
