With eclectic influences ranging from classic artists to contemporary talents, the musicians of Silhouette Rising have managed to blend their inspirations to create a sound that encompasses the art of creating music. HIP Video Promo saw the ever-growing stardom of this band, and it is with their quirky, somewhat comical approach to music that we can appreciate a good laugh here and there while still enjoying some feel-good music. Their introduction of two videos “Don’t You Hear Me Calling?” and “Sex in the City”, from their new album Ode To Vandalism, offer the balance that exists within this group of musicians and the creative approach to music that they are wholeheartedly taking on.
In their first video for “Don’t You Hear Me Calling?” we are introduced to the more comical side of the band. Based on a comedic rendition of the popular film O Brother, Where Art Thou, Silhouette Rising offers a song that captures the essence of well-known artists such as Bright Eyes and Fleet Foxes. The video transports us to sing-a-long melodies that are mixed with the contemporary sounds of indie-folk rock all-stars. “Don’t You Hear Me Calling?” is an invitation for music listeners across the world to check out what Silhouette Rising’s catalog of musical influences are.
However, it is with their video for “Sex in the City” that we see the true side of these performers.
The song captures the essence of Drive-Thru Records’ own RX Bandits, as it contains the rock elements and horn sections throughout the verses. Within “Sex in the City,” we witness the hardships of finding love within a city that is dangerous and full of people who are somewhat evil. The song paints a picture that shows the true necessities of getting by in an overpopulated city, and moreover it provides guidance for finding truth. Click HERE for the Full bio!
