We’re back with Dinked 150, the second album from Dublin art-rockers Silverbacks. Following their excellent 2020 debut, Fad, the 5-piece are back with more finely crafted, 70s-inspired indie rock. Recorded towards the end of 2020 with Daniel Fox (Girl Band) on production, Archive Materials finds the band seeking inspiration some of the softer balladry of Neil Young and Weyes Blood, whilst never sacrificing their roots in 70s punk and No Wave. Despite lyrically remaining rooted in the lockdown period it was written in, the album feels truly timeless – Silverbacks feel like they could easily have been contemporaries to Television or Sonic Youth. Archive Materials is released on January 21st by Full Time Hobby.
The Dinked Edition of Archive Materials is on 500 limited clear LP with a bonus 7″ single, alternate sleeve and lyric sheet.
