We discovered this fantastic young five-piece supporting Martin Grech at Sheffield Leadmill a while back. Instantly stunned by their enchanting Coopers-style combination of gushing samples and zooming guitars, we hounded them for a recording.
Et voila! One studio track from a recording session last year (which they assure is very out of date) and two more recent live recordings. With huge soundscapes swirling with moody emotion, After The Silence play the kind of music that heaves around the room, cloudy atmosphere spinning around your head, transporting you to somewhere on the edge of the universe. Translucent, shimmering effects lend perspective to deep, progressive riffs and raw, sleazy vocals that convey driving, emotive melodies.
Unique, and at the same time, beautifully familiar. Fans of the old Cooper Temple Clause EP’s and anyone who likes their music laden with all the skull-vibrating effects and noises technology can afford, this one’s for you.
