If you’re a fan of Nirvana or The Cure, you have to check out Silver Relics. The New York-based band comprised of Alex Sepassi and Justin Alvis recently released their debut album Generic., and the album is anything but!
Together, Sepassi on vocals and Alvis on drums combine technicolour instrumentals and “brooding 80’s indie rock.” The duo moved to New York in early 2017, where they had a dream reminiscent of many that move to the Big Apple.
When composing the 12 tracks that make up Generic., Sepassi explains that “the lyrics point directly towards where he is in life at that exact moment.”
“What makes these songs different for me is how we were able to capture a snapshot of all the things that surround a life changing move in a very short period of time…the excitement, the uncertainty, the risk, the anticipation, the massive fucking anxiety just to name a handful. […] I think these are experiences that a lot of people go through often and you certainly don’t have to move across the country to identify with this concept. It’s very human.”
Silver Relics are currently on a small accompanying tour for the release of the album. Stay tuned for more from them coming later this year!
