Coming from a small city near the Alps and not from one of the more obvious music capitals, Silver Firs’ sound seems not so easy to categorize. They are combining elements of folk, dreampop and psychedelica and have an obvious affinity to non-Western pop music. «Filled with all sorts of wonderfully mossy backwoods eccentricities» wrote music blog I Guess I’m Floating and there’s not much to add to that. The band formed in 2011 and since then followed a strict DIY credo when recording and producing their songs.
This stubbornness paid off. While Silver Firs were still relatively unknown in their home country their releases gained a lot of attention & blog love abroad. A few days after the song Motherland was posted on SoundCloud, it reached #1 on Hype Machine’s charts of the Most Popular Tracks on Blogs Now. Features on Bandcamp, Indie Shuffle, KEXP and more online magazines followed.
Their latest EP#2 got airplay on more than 75 radio stations in the USA and Canada and made it into the CMJ Charts for 3 weeks.
Silver Firs’ new EP#3 will be out October 23, 2105. The record is the third in a trilogy of EPs, and the conclusion of the series. In celebration, all three EPs will be combined in a limited edition vinyl record, to be released on the same day.
