FOLLow The Silence Industry viA:


The Silence Industry’s latest release “Forward, And / Or Dust” marks an intriguing musical evolution for the band. Whereas previous efforts dwelled in moody, industrial-tinged sounds, this track gallops along with propulsive, synth-rock energy. From the opening bars, the listener is drawn into the song’s infectious rhythm and swirling keyboard melodies.

As the track builds, the instrumentation thickens into a lush wall of sound. Driving bass and drums push the song forward as distorted guitar textures weave in and out. The vocal delivery complements the music nicely with a direct yet melodic tone that cuts through the mix. Lyrically, the song deals with themes of perseverance and determination.

The chorus lands with an anthemic quality, made all the more powerful by layered vocal harmonies. Here the song ascends into its highest emotional register, sure to get fists pumping in the air during a live performance. Structurally, the composition is tight and focused without an ounce of fat to trim. Each section and progression feels purposeful in driving the song from start to finish.

Fans of The Silence Industry will find this new song intriguing as it incorporates influences not heard in previous releases. The retro-futuristic production style and synth-based songwriting harken back to genres like synthpop and dance-rock. However, the band’s darker inclinations remain intact in the song’s atmosphere and lyrical tone.

For listeners unfamiliar with The Silence Industry’s prior work, “Forward, And / Or Dust” serves as a lively, engaging entry point into their catalog. Either way, the song provides an energetic shot in the arm and a reminder of music’s power to lift the spirit.
