With a roaring sound that has you remembering those local bands who play their hearts out in those smokey clubs with that rare character you only feel when you are inside, Silver Halide seem like the kind of outfit that will have a pint with you after the gig. There is so much honesty laced inside this raspy release that might have the hairs on the back of your spine alive again, as they casually saunter in and blast something which will capture your attention instantly.

Ether‘ from Bristol, UK-based indie alt-rock band Silver Halide, is a raw single that has you in a reflective mood and features passionate vocals and a soundscape to splinter through anything that was hiding from you before. Seeking the truth is the mission and you will feel that this is a British single from another era altogether. This is a ruggedly-made effort – skillfully assembled with that extra bit of heart – that is currently lacking from so many souls in this bloodbath-packed world of indisputable misery for so many humans.
