Silverbacks

A ferocious live draw in Dublin’s increasingly packed array of hot new guitar bands, Silverbacks exist somewhere halfway between art rock and pub rock, a lairy, brainy and stylish menace. Their debut album, produced by Daniel Fox of Girl Band, should be one of 2019’s best, but on the already released material such as ‘Just In The Band’ their M.O. is clear – triple guitar interplay that recalls Television, Daniel O’Kelly’s not-quite-sung, not-quite-spoken utterings, and a general Parquet Courts-like loucheness that leaps from restrained to urgent and into collapse.
