SUPPORT FOR ‘CARAMEL SLICE’
“Infectious downbeat psychedelia that’s bursting with groove.”
– Deafen County (AUS)
“It’s a mesmerising, bare bones, jammy type one that had me daydreaming. Oh and thanks, now i feel like a caramel slice.”
– Declan Byrne – triple j (AUS)
“I always go for the caramel slice at the bakery as my go-to treat, and this song is just that – woozy, rich and leaves you feeling full as a goog.”
– Pip Rasmussen – triple j Unearthed (AUS)
Following on from their critically praised single ‘Pomegranate’, Sydney-based indie-rock quartet Silky Roads have just unveiled their soothing new single ‘Caramel Slice’.
Channelling a surf-rock infused vigour, ‘Caramel Slice’ bursts with an explosion of sunshine, as reverb-soaked guitars and spacious percussion playfully intertwine. As the track unfolds, subtle fuzz-laden verses effortlessly build into a soaring chorus, capping off a meticulously composed psych-pop number.
Silky Roads talks about the meaning behind ‘Caramel Slice’:
“‘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.”
Previous single ‘Pomegranate’ was embraced by Australian radio stations triple j, triple j Unearthed, 4ZZZ and Radio Adelaide. The track also received support from online blogs Atwood Magazine (USA), The Soundcheck, Forte Magazine, AAA Backstage and Something You Said.
While they’ve only been a band for a short period, Silky Roads have shown themselves to be a prolific up and comers. The four songwriters take inspiration from the likes of Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale and Mako Road, creating a unique blend of indie and psych-rock, with further releases on the horizon for 2021.
