Silences – ‘The Sea’

, Silences – ‘The Sea’

The Armagh band Silences were a recent pick at last year’s Hard Working Class Heroes festival. Their lilting folk song ‘Sister Snow’ was my way in.

Conchúr White, Christopher Harbinson, Breándan White, Jonathan Downing and Michael Keyes are back with a new song and they are gearing up for two shows at The Great Escape in Brighton next month.

‘The Sea’ has their sound reaching further than before, and sounding grander in the process:

White said this of the track’s lyrical content:

“Practicality cripples us. We consistently negotiate and compromise with our anxieties. The Sea pays homage to desire over fear. It is an amalgamation of everything we have learnt and signifies an advancement in both writing and production.”
