Silverbacks unveil new single 'Rolodex City'

With their highly-anticipated new album due out early next year, Silverbacks have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Rolodex City' follows on from the previously shared 'Wear My Medals' and the record's title-track in previewing their sophomore LP 'Archive Material', which is out on the 21st January via Full Time Hobby.

Speaking about the new offering, vocalist and guitarist Daniel O’Kelly said, "“Rolodex City is about a property mogul who has fallen on very hard times during a period where technology has changed the way his business and people work. Similar to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid getting caught out by the trains, bicycles and an increasingly small world, Mr Rolodex is running out of options. He visits a town in a barren landscape with the hope of flipping a bit of land, posing as whatever character the people there will trust - Rolodex City.

"Ultimately, our anti-hero has no luck and reluctantly ends his trip at a line dance led by Emma – feel free to join in! To help set the scene, we used a live drum sound and contrasting drum machine claps and mechanical percussion. The guitars are inspired by the twang of country music with some Verlaine techniques employed on the solo, for the riff spotters.”
