Work is the first release for 13 years from Denmark’s best kept secret: digital power rock trio Silo. Back in the 1990s the group – Frederik Ammitzbøll (guitars), Mikkel Bender (bass) and Søren Dahlgaard (drums) – were the most abrasive act signed up by Swim Records, the independent label founded by Wire frontman Colin Newman and his wife Malka Spigel. After releasing two albums – Instar (1998) and Alloy (2001) – and appearing live with the likes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sigur Rós, Trans Am and Pole, the group, who came together as students, drifted off into family life and gainful employment. But now Silo have reloaded, and their distinctive twisted-metal sound, built on crunchy digitized guitars, beats that crack like a bolt cutter, and a sturdy industrial rhythm matrix, sounds bang on trend.
Work will be released on 14th April via Novennial Paralysis
