German up-and-comers Silent Attic have taken motivation from the seemingly devastating coronavirus situation through putting their free time to good use by pouring themselves into their music.
Using the time to produce their EP, Escape, Silent Attic have worked hard to develop a new sound they are proud to share with the world. As a follow on from their debut album, Late Night Talks, Escape will be a smaller-scale take on their new music allowing for a more clear representation of who the band are.
An emotional single for the band, Silent Attic have taken on the role of presenting their unmistakable sound that will be heard throughout the upcoming EP. Opening with a funky but melancholy guitar riff from Leon Paul Paulsen before being layered with intensifying bass by Benjamin Bajramovic and complimentary drum beats from Maik Klink,Take My Time immediately makes a listener's head bop along.
Inspired by indie-rock artists from Arctic Monkeys to The Smiths to Catfish and the Bottlemen, Silent Attic are an alternative band utilising lead singer, Eros Atomus’s, gritty voice along with the use of well-written catchy instrumental riffs. With elements of classic rock, punk and pop, Silent Attic are proving themselves to be confident with their abilities.
Take My Time tells the story of something destined to end too soon. In this case, using the idea of a relationship to explain how the two sides of the ended couple perceive their co-existence and the downfall of that co-existence. While this thought may seem a pessimistic idea, Take My Time allows for the focus of growth in the lyrics. Although sad and unwanted things like the ending of a relationship cannot be controlled, as individuals we can decide what we do with the situations we are placed in. Rather than dwelling on past mistakes and becoming fearful of new connections, we can choose to grow and learn from the experience in order to perfect ourselves and the next person we connect with - an important message for listeners of all ages and backgrounds.
Due to be released October 2nd, I am already excited for the world to hear their new EP, Escape. With Take My Time teasing the hard work they’ve done during their spare time, Silent Attic are definitely ready to do big things in the future.
