I first heard of Las Vegas’ the Silver State a few months back, when they played a couple of shows (in Flagstaff, Ariz., and Vegas) with sourceVictoria. Unable to go to either, I finally settled into a few of their tunes recently and wanted to share.
What strikes me most about the band is that there seems to be a certain restraint in the music because nothing sounds forced or trite. It’s more impressive considering they flirt with different styles and tempos with excellent results. I think these two tracks are a good example of that.
Stream a couple more tracks (I suggest The Question) and buy the Silver State’s EP here. Visit them at MySpace here.
