Silo is a three-piece band from Copenhagen that has been on and off in the Danish music scene, fortunately 2014 brought them back.
Some years ago, in 1998 they released their first album “Instar”, in 2001 “Alloy” followed up. And ever since their musical presence vanished until now. Thirteen years later we found them again, bringing to the table the album “Work” with hard, psychedelic rock merged with synths.
Something that captures the attention is how, in some of the tracks on the new album Silo align the elements mentioned above with great soothing vocals, for instance Jonas Bjerre’s from Mew and Maria Hamer-Jensen’s, assembling an unexpected and abstract contrast proving that music can be timeless.
NME wrote about “Work”:
If this reunion after 13 years comes because they wanted to inject some excitement back into their lives, it sounds like it worked.
The album as a whole is incredibly consistent, nonetheless I picked some outstanding tracks that really dragged me in: “Filaments”, “Power Points”, “O”.
