Artist of the month: (The) Silent Days

Leaving aside their power-pop inspired by the 90’s that we could ear on their debut album "I Am Nothing", which was released in 2008, (the) Silent Days reveal a more pop and more aerial sumptuous-sounding universe to give way to an increasing musical maturity.

Recorded and produced at studio Microclimat in Epinal by Vincent Hermon at the initiative of the executive producer Dominique Marotel, the aptly named California EP suggests broader and further afield horizons thanks to its subtle arrangements. Five songs inspired by 70's California pop and by today's songwriters such as John Vanderslice, Lou Barlow, Evan Dando or Josh Rouse to name a few, this new record gives birth to an imaginary world and calls more than ever to dream, to escape and travel.
