A great riff often separates the great from the good, and here we get a recognisable yet softly complex, quickly impressive one, to lead us into what proves a beautifully explosive and passionate new anthem.
The Silver Bayonets
A heartfelt rock anthem for those who know the only road worth taking is that which holds true to their dreams & desires as an individual. Turn it up loud.
We all dwell on our mistakes, we all overthink and find ourselves lying still in utter silent chaos. Awake encapsulates that state of being, and it couldn’t come at a better time.
You don’t get too many rock songs or songs from any genre these days that take something so interesting & unexpected & re-imagine it in a new form.
The Silver Bayonets write some of the best songs out there in rock music right now. Their energy & lyricism always get to you, and although this track has been approached from a slightly different angle, the authenticity & inherent character of their sound remains.
The Silver Bayonets get the conversation going in their own, hard hitting way. Cleverly, or ironically, there’s nothing fake about their writing. They don’t strive to lift you out of your lull with joyful chords & statements of ‘It’ll be alright’, they tell it like it is.
It’s an anthem, by all accounts, with a memorable & addictive hook, but also some very honest & deeply reflective connotations. It’s an important song.
