About The Silos
The Silos buzz with rock energy reminiscent of the proto-punk Lower East Side legends The Velvet Underground, punched up with pop melodies that resuscitates a sound that never went out of style. The songs play out like minimalist short stories framed by the spacious, guitar-heavy arrangements that add depth and transcendence, but can switch to ferocious, hook-laden rock to part the clouds and land back on terra firma. The Silos were named “Best New American Band” by Rolling Stone magazine and made their national television appearance on the David Letterman Show. After numerous critically acclaimed albums and thousands of days on the road, it is heartening to know that the band continues to make brilliance look easy.
"The band's austere style inflects the astringent twang of The Velvet Underground with the drone of R.E.M. and adds countryish echoes that recall Gram Parsons." Stephen Holden The New York Times "Powerful earthy pop that sounds like the result of Nirvana riding on R.E.M's tour bus." Buzz McClain The Washington Post
