Not Quite Silent…

Silent Agency Lovesound

This week, my ears have a shiny, brand new toy!  The name – Silent Agency – and they hail from Minneapolis, MN.  Their new ep entitled ‘Let’s Build A Summer’ is an instant rush, or, an instant mellow-rush.  From the time the half-minute intro kicks in, you kind of get that ”feeling”….this is going to be good….

Track 2 is called ‘Burn Out’, and yes, for about 20 seconds you feel like you’re about to listen to a new, pretty U2 song, but as soon as lead singer Evan Bakker steps in, it creates a completely different feeling.

Somehow, this band from Minnesota puts euro rock, jam band, classic rock, and emo into a bowl and mixes it up quite well.  The very young band is well on its way to becoming the realest deal.  My forecast:  If they continue making music for the next 2-4 years, you’ll see them in the ranks of such bands as today’s Animal Collective, Portugal. the Man, and Arctic Monkeys.
You must listen for yourself…  If nothing else, they’re a great conversation piece!

Silent Agency ‘Let’s Build A Summer’ is now available on iTunes
