Silverbacks’ debut album Fad due for release on July 17 via Central Tones.
Dublin indie-rock quintet Silverbacks have shared the video for the latest single to be gleaned from their upcoming debut album Fad, produced by Girl Band bassist Daniel Fox. The track explores the band’s new wave influences with intricate instrumentation and effortless pop melodies.
Bassist and vocalist Emma Hanlon on the track: “I love Blondie and Kilian overheard me singing along to them one night. A few days later he surprised me with our very own new wave jam ‘Up The Nurses’. The song talks about “amour fou” (“mad love”) and the unwanted adoration someone receives for the care they’re giving someone.”
Vocalist and guitarist Daniel O’Kelly on the video: “With everyone in isolation, we set ourselves the challenge of building our own weird world. In the video, two amateur radio enthusiasts help an astronaut return to his galaxy queen. We all had a basic tin foil spec and story to work from and everyone then shot their individual parts. It’s loosely inspired by Be Kind Rewind and their resourcefulness.”
