Dublin five-piece Silverbacks share new single ‘Pink Tide’

Silverbacks return with their new single ‘Pink Tide’, released on Thursday 16th May. Continuing their fruitful studio partnership with Girl Band’s Daniel Fox, with ‘Pink Tide’ they lay waste to easy pigeonholing and strike out on their own, furrowing a path laced with deadpan humour and some sick twin lead guitar lines. The band are performing in London tonight, May 16th, at the Bermondsey Social Club with support from GURU and Super Paradise.

Musically, it was described by Stereogum as having “a cruising, catchy verse, and in a way it sets you up for the surprise of the chorus, a sardonic post-punk burst disrupting the seemingly laidback music that surrounded it.“.

Silverbacks’ Daniel O’Kelly says the origins of the track came from “another demo, poorly named ‘Mark E. Smith Eats His Purple Crayon’. In the end we realised that the riff deserved better, and we started writing what eventually became Pink Tide.”.
