Sydney-based indie-rock quartet Silky Roads have just dropped their zesty new single, Pomegranate, just in time for your warm and sunny weekend.
Produced and mixed by Yossif Kay, the track opens with a fine as hell bass line and steady beat. Frontman Guy Richards gives an assertive vocal performance, captivating listeners from his first note, with some ethereal harmonies laced throughout. The tracks lucid instrumentation lightens dynamically within the songs bridge, before erupting again in funky goodness during the final chorus.
Speaking of the track, the band shared: "’Pomegranate’ was inspired by the art deco. The brooding and mysterious qualities Silky Roads aim to capture in ‘Pomegranate’ put you in a Tarantino-esque setting, trying to capture the darkness and mystery that hits that certain spot for music lovers."
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.
Pomegranate is out now! Listen to the track below.
