Amidst the black and white tapestry of the crudely macadamized cement asphalt and darkened shadows of the gray vacancy of the new New York comes the brilliance of the FM’s “Silent City”, an ode to our brave new normal. Only…..the song was written last April 2019!! “Silent City” unveils today, May 20, 2020 via the iconic TRAX Record label.
The video was completed while social isolating and sheltering in place from pictures and footage of the echoes of what was once the busiest city on the planet. The eerie faded magenta sunset looms in the background during the powerful monochromatic video making the song spring to life adding to the collaboration of lyrics and music making “Silent City” a compellingly haunting experience.
Visionary Matte Namer, the face and soul of the gender bending, glam rock band, The FMs along with Frankie Rex, the heart of the band, harmonize lyrics including. “Stay inside, you’ll be alright”…how did they know? A song written a year ago regarding a pandemic hitting NYC a year ago…”Silent City takes a breath. A supernatural quest. To collect the consciousness brigade”….. a little chilling.
Straight from the story of The FM’s (femmes, females to males, fuck me sillies), Matte Namer (They, Them) & Frankie Rex (He, Him, They, Them), met in high school and “formed The FM’s, as a study on the perceived duality yet infinite spectrum of gender.” Their anthemic music has since appeared along with them on the Showtime movie, “Fluidity.”
