Hello, hello people! Its DJ Dizzy here & I sat down with the band SilkSided who had a lot to say regarding their humble beginnings
How'd you get started in music? All the members started playing around the ’90 years, a period during which metal music started to be contaminated by other genres. In the following years we all had previous experiences with other bands until we finally met in 2012.
Who are your inspirations or influences? He list would be so long.. we surely owe so much to the ‘90s alternative rock\metal, moreover every member takes his own musical preferences from 70s prog, psychedelic, and even electronic music.
What advice would offer aspiring performers? We feel more like we should take than give advice… lol By the way, we found it’s very important to accurately plan everything, from arrangements to the sound you want to obtain before you record.
How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers? We don’t hide our influences and we know we didn’t create anything new. It’s not easy to find your own musical identity nowadays. Our music is sincere: in our songs you can feel who we are and where we come from. We think music should generate an open range of emotions in the listener, from rage to relief, and inspire reflections. This is what we are trying to transmit to listeners.
Any new gigs or albums in the future?
After one year from Leave no stone unturned was released we finally got back in studio with a new producer and just finished to record one song. The sound is always the same but… heavier.
Special thanks to them for this interview & I wish them nothing but luck in their careers so until then I'll catch you on the flipside! Stay awesome & rock n roll!
