Silences – ‘Red Dress’


Armagh band Silences last caught my attention with the dynamic song ‘There’s A Wolf’ last March and ‘Before Ten’, earlier this year.

Since then, the band started by the singer-songwriter Conchúr White has solidified into a five-piece unit with Christopher Harbinson, Breándan White, Jonathan Downing and Michael Keyes.

‘Red Dress’, their latest single moves their sound on nicely.

White said:

“‘It’s about wanting things that aren’t necessarily good for you and I think we are all guilty of that in some form. The entire track is a three chord loop but it doesn’t feel repetitive. We were meticulous about finding the right sounds and I think that comes through.

The track was recorded at Big Space Studios in Newry with Declan Legge, who has also recorded SOAK, Ciaran Lavery, and Duke Special.
