Stream: Silverbacks – Dirty Money


Insofar as first-rate lo-fi indie rock goes, the island of Ireland is surely right up there with the most fertile.

Laying claim to their stake amongst the very best, Dublin’s Silverbacks will release a new EP, the five-track Sink The Fat Moon on May 19 – and if new single ‘Dirty Money’ is anything to by, we’re in for something well worth the wait. A terse, harmonic-laden effort that openly yet rather brilliantly filters the more more reclined efforts of the holy trifecta that is Sonic Youth, Pavement and Pixies, it’s a masterfully languid release betraying real purpose in its disaffected swagger.

Out via Miami Records on May 19, pre-order via Bandcamp here
