Silver Haar Releases A Hot Plate Of Alt-pop Rock
Silver Haar just dropped a new single and it's got a very pop rock style that combines Elvia Costello with Foo Fighters and touch on Queens of The Stone Age.
"Fear of the Unknown" is a bright and vibrant single that hones in on bringing atmospheric tones to a pop rock song and focuses on guitar tones and memorable vocal changes that almost feel like retro alt pop in its own way.
Bands like The Cars come to mind as vocals have a short range echoe effect and the upswing pop hits hard before it breaks into a more Arcade Fire style section and the combination of the two are incredibly addicting.
This track hits like whiplash and before you know it, it's ended and you find yourself wanting to replay it straight away.
There is something familiar and warm about the song almost like you've heard it before at some point somewhere.
A certain gusto and bright energy is present and gives the band a sort of polished but vintage sound at the same time.
These guys know exactly how to write a catchy song without having it lose its edge whatsoever. The track is very alive and breathing and has a driving backbone to it that really works.
You can also tell they love what they do as the song does have that something. That heart and love for the craft is very present.
This is a completely fun and even danceable song that beckons all kinds of classic influence and roll sit all up into a killer track.
Taking rock from different decades passed and bringing them together like this is really smart and well done in a tasteful and lovable manner.
"Fear of the Unknown" is something you can really get down with easily and you become quickly hooked on the sound.
We suggest giving this one a go.
