Silverlake is somewhat of a oddity in the local music scene. Where every other band seemed to be making their noise in heavy metal, rap/hip-hop or latin music, the quartet broke into new grounds by emerging as new-wave, alternative pop rock band, infusing the popular sounds of the likes of Coldplay and Travis with the authentic and classic rock sounds of Pink Floyd. The result is mesmerizing.
The ...band was formed in 2008 and had their very first gig opening for Ala Ghawas at Elham Live Art 08. They started playing more gigs and writing their own material and they blew the crowds away when they performed at the Elham Arts Festival music concert in May 2009 at the Cultural Hall.
Not content with that, they also headlined the Reflux festival, Bahrain’s first heavy and alternative rock music festival at the Bahrain International Circuit a few months later and opened for Finely Quaye during the Bud Music... Live! festival at Coral Beach Club in December.
As one of the youngest bands around, their musical maturity is refreshing and their willingness to push themselves to create accessible alternative rock tunes must be admired.
