Silent Mass. The name itself evokes a sense of the ethereal, the otherworldly, a mass of sound that exists beyond our mortal realm. And make no mistake, this NYC-based quartet’s music is exactly that – a sonic journey that takes you to the depths of melancholy, the height of introspection, and the outskirts of your own consciousness.
Their sound, a blend of 90s alternative, post-punk, and shoegaze, is a thing of beauty. A beauty that’s raw, intense, and at times, so overwhelming that you feel like you’re drowning in it. But isn’t that what we want from our music? To be transported to places we’ve never been before, to feel things we’ve never felt, to see things we’ve never seen?
Silent Mass achieves this with ease. Their haunting vocals, lush guitar lines, and primal percussive rhythms create a soundscape that’s both familiar and new.
