“A twisting, spindly take on arty punk-rock, Silverbacks take the noodling attitude of early-
00s New York rock and drag it across the Atlantic, frontman Daniel O’Kelly’s sing-speak-
shouted vocal riding atop ever-more tangled-up guitar lines.” – NME
As Silverbacks release more new music from the follow-up to their Choice Music Prize-
nominated debut album Fad, a picture of the band’s sardonic, often surrealist view of the
characters and communities in their lives becomes clearer. New track “Rolodex City” is
perhaps the most forensic in how it approaches its story of the latest anti-hero to find
themselves under the Silverbacks microscope.
Archive Material only cements Silverbacks’ status as one of Ireland’s most fascinating
bands. Recorded at Dublin’s Sonic Studios in November 2020, with Daniel Fox undertaking
production duties once more, it finds the band leaning into their early influences, delivering
idiosyncratic indie-rock packed with intricate, Tom Verlaine-esque “guitarmony”. Other
reference points for the record included Neil Young, Weyes Blood and – on ‘Wear My Medals’
in particular – Bradford Cox and Cate Le Bon’s collaborative record Myths 004.
Keenly observed and vividly rendered, Archive Material is an eye-witness account of human
resilience as much as it is a compelling indie-rock record. Future historians take note.
