Silences, led by singer and songwriter Conchur White (with the line-up completed by Christopher Harbinson, Breándan White, Jonathan Downing and Michael Keyes) – have received critical acclaim for their three EPs ‘Nevernames’, ’Sister Snow’ and ‘Luna’. The Irish based act have received considerable support from the likes of Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1) as well as Clash, Other Voices, XFM, Amazing Radio, RTE, Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol).
Silences’ music has been streamed over six million times on Spotify and they have become one of the most talked about acts from Northern Ireland.
Highlights in the last year have included much talked about performances at Glastonbury, SXSW and Latitude as well as their first UK and Irish tours. This tour included a show in O2 Shepherd’s Bush. In addition Silences were asked to take part in the British Council’s “UK Music On The Go’ advertising campaign. This initiative promoted Silences’ music and image across four major cities in China alongside acts like ‘Young Fathers’ and ‘Prides’. At the conclusion of the campaign Silences’ were voted as the most popular act.
Described by the BBC as beautifully understated and extremely inventive. Comparisons have been drawn to DCFC, Alt-J and Arctic Monkeys.
