‘What makes these guys stand out is the simplicity of it all. You can really tell that this band have grasped the absolutely essential concept that making a record is not about complexity, its about crafting a warm sound and layering each individual part meticulously, as to make every note, hi-hat, chord change and so on count and affect the listener.’
‘Leicester’s Silent Devices‘ music exists somewhere in the ether flitting effortlessly between the physical and the dream world. Their colossal multi-layered soundscapes transporting the listener to far-flung corners of the imagination and easing them back to reality at a whim. A journey on which they take the helm with such confidence and self- assurance that the listener has no option but to submit, strap in and enjoy the ride… ‘On Two Decades – Silent Devices have managed to create a wonderful musical journey. Their music manages that rare act of somehow being delicate whilst being simultaneously powerful.’
