Dublin, County Dublin
Based in Dublin, Silverbacks deliver their own louche take on NYC-indebted rock. They ply their trade with as much emphasis on the dry humour running through their lyrics as the propulsive, triple guitar-led onslaught in their music.
“…infectious and breakneck” – Stereogum
"Try to follow the thread of those guitars. It’s impossible. Twisting, turning and transforming like Optimus Prime in a sticky-floored club, it drives each track into cacophonous, explosive territory" - NME
"Dublin's Silverbacks are at the forefront of this, all bassline spasms, taut percussive patterns and barbed wire guitar explosions" - Clash Magazine
"With the same sarcy, stone and starving balled-up frustration as Brooklynites Parquet Courts, Dublin’s Silverbacks are an exciting new prospect" - DIY Magazine - The Neu Bulletin
"Their stripped back sound oozes with humble confidence and a captivating, refreshing sincerity, which has most definitely been lacking in music of late". -Part Time Wizards
