Indie Outfit SILENT FORUM Color Summer With Sparkling Pop Gem ‘TREAT YOURSELF’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

Who: Indie outfit from Wales.


“It’s their most unashamedly poppy single to date. Treat Yourself is a mixture of
revealing, uncomfortable lyrics paired with animated, uplifting pop instrumentation.
You can hear the band having a great time playing around in much poppier territory
than they are used to – this is as bubblegum as they’re ever going to get.”

TUTV: Treat Yourself is all a catchy pop-ular gem is about. It’s lively and sprightly
and has your hungry ears’ attention from the get-go. Tantalizing tunes like this one
are always welcome on my headphones. It feels like summer, it tastes like Piña colada,
it causes a holiday mood. Top melody, shiny guitars, drum/bass beats, zestful vocals/harmonies and a solid gold sing-along chorus. Bingo!

“Why don’t you treat yourself to a little self love
You matter, you matter so much
You don’t matter, you matter”.

Flamboyant Debut Album ‘EVERYTHING SOLVED AT ONCE’ By Welsh Outfit SILENT FORUM…

16 April 2020

Welsh post alt-funk rockers SILENT FORUM released their flamboyant debut album ‘EVERYTHING SOLVED AT ONCE’ last December. A vibrant piece of amplified work with, just like their outfits, a kaleidoscopic variety of glimmering guitar pop extravaganza.

This electric-powered band produces a vitalizing sonorousness that ranges from funky
to punky, catchy to haunting, from groovy to hypnotizing. Lyrically they criticize social discrimination and dreadful human injustices. A must-hear band indeed.

Finally, in a couple of weeks, on 6 December, Welsh titillating rockers SILENT FORUM
will release their debut album EVERYTHING SOLVED AT ONCE. Ahead of it the band revealed another new cut of the upcoming longplayer. ‘A POP ACTis a tongue-in-cheek response from the band to a DJ who called them too serious.“.

If writing captivating, emotive and bewitching songs, driven by spellbinding guitar layers and affecting vocals bringing Jeff Buckley‘s feverish vox to mind, is too serious then I’ll listen only to too serious music in the future anymore, starting here and now…

Welsh Foursome SILENT FORUM Moves With New Troubled Reflection – Here’s ‘SAFETY IN NUMBERS’…

Welsh quartet SILENT FORUM keeps on coming up with stirring stuff. After their
2017 debut album Sanctuary+ followed by two significant singles the foursome
just shared another momentous track.

New cut SAFETY IN NUMBERS “expresses the importance of looking after your friends.
Our relationships are the most meaningful thing we can achieve in life”
. But it feels like we do not care enough about each other in the end as the song’s tone is darkish, doubtful and insecure and the music’s timbre is melancholic, contemplative and poignant, confirming once again that the human battle for attention isn’t an easy one. Silent Forum translates that well-known feeling perfectly well the way New York‘s gloomy rockers Interpol do it sonically for some time now. This heartfelt reflection proves that this band is in touch
with our troubled, selfish reality. Capture the mixed emotions right here…


SAFETY IN NUMBERS – out 10th May
