Teasing, pulsating and always carried by an abundant imagination, French act COLT SILVERS are 4 eternally unshaven kidults, developing a generous indie rock between bright pop intervals, silky electronic layers and quivering dissonances, spangled here and there with angelic voices.
With 2 innovating albums and countless concerts all over the world, COLT SILVERS has been getting fast traction in France and beyond. After their very much acclaimed album Red Panda released in 2013, full of dancy rock hits such as As We Walk and Season of Silence, the Strasbourg based band decided to start 2015 with a new album that they recorded in an american rock temple: the prestigious Waterfront Studios in Hudson, US (where The Strokes recorded one of their first opuses).
The new works of COLT SILVERS is a return to more energy and vast spaces after the minimalism of “Red Panda”. It’s definitely more rock influenced and incisive, combining heavy guitars as well as the distinct cinematographic inspiration of the bands beginnings with its orchestral and 80’s sounds.
Not wanting to lose their French touch in the process, the band has decided to work with the producer Fab Dupont (The Dø, Santigold). The result is a series of tracks freed from the former label of “electro-rock” and completely embracing their quintessence of pop.
New album “Swords” will be in the stores in September 2015. And before that new release these kids are going to grant your spring with a new appearance, notably on the stage of Midi Festival and other venues across China. As a matter of fact Colt Silvers do have some acquintances with China, for they did a tour with other french band and friend 1984 in 2013 and showcased at DongDong in November 2014, blowing away people’s mind with a hyper energectic show where lead singer Tristan spent more time dancing with the crowd on the dance floor of Yugongyishan than on stage! If you want to catch more of their juvenile swag and great sound, stay tuned with Kaiguan news.
