At just seven songs, the instant sing-along qualities of the upcoming “Silent Revolution” EP (Jan. 29th, Randm Records) by San Francisco-based trio Scary Little Friends fills the “leaves you wanting more” edict perfectly. The record’s lyrics, addressing alienation with less of a generic, transient fist-in-the-air, and more of an impression-leaving palm-to-the-forehead, make the band one to watch in 2016.
“The internet is the modern battlefield. It is inevitable that that world comes crashing down upon us,” says the group’s leader Chris Jones of the record’s concept. “Perhaps there is hope in the aftermath. Perhaps we will be born anew into a world without technology.”
It’s this idea that takes the “Silent Revolution” EP away from simple contemplation and complaining about the way things are and into the timeless quality of a record about the way things could be. This is best heard on the single “In This Lifetime,” which Jones refers to as his “revolution song.” Hear it now via BLURT.
“You’re young, you’re crazy, but you’re not alone,” Jones reminds us when discussing the tune, and in the song itself when he sings, “There’s a season when we reach for higher ground, shatter the lies we believe in. In this lifetime, we all lose our minds, and sometimes love is all we’re searching for.”
The “Silent Revolution” EP by Scary Little Friends arrives on January 29th, 2016 from Randm Records. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
