Sydney-based indie-rock quartet Silky Roads have just dropped their soothing new single, Caramel Slice, just in time for late summer weekend.
The psych-pop infused track is built upon reverb-soaked guitars and spacious percussion, whilst commenting on global issues that are overlooked by those in power. As the track unfolds, subtle fuzz-laden verses effortlessly build into a soaring chorus, capping off the meticulously composed track.
Speaking of the track, the band share: “Caramel Slice was written during the Black Summer fires; Lyrically the song expresses how we felt fed up with the blind eye that the people in power give towards global issues. We thought it was fitting to add sirens and commotion, as well as a surprise uproar at the end to further translate this point. However, as always, the meaning of the song is up to the listeners interpretation.”
In the short time since Silky Roads burst onto the scene, the prolific band already have three single releases under their belt. Taking inspiration from Aussie legends such as Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale and Mako Road, the four-piece are carving out their own path, fusing together indie and psych rock soundscapes to create their signature sound.
Caramel Slice is out now!
