Live Review: Next Stop Atlanta, Everybody Looks Famous, Killing Nancy & Silver Story - Dry Bar, Manchester - 11/03/2013
Normally with live reviews we set the scene a little. Usually it’s dark and cold and yeah, it was dark and bloody cold. We’d just enjoyed some burritos so we were ready to face the live music with full bellies and Mexican grins.
First up were Manchester’s very own Silver Story. The four piece rock outfit did their upmost to make themselves seen and heard. A solid and well paced set of hook driven indie rock songs made the assembling crowd take notice. (3/5)
St. Helens quartet Silver Story has been around since 2008, taking influence from a multitude of genres. This has led to the release of their EP, ‘Arts & Vandals’, a four-track release that promises many great things for this young band.
Kicking off with ‘Jaded’, we’re drawn in with a fast and furious tempo; discordant riffs mix with slick, smooth vocals that soar. Alex McCabe’s sweeping vocals twang with deep emotion and passion, evident during ‘My Empire’. A melodic bassline stretches to meet indestructible drumming. And it is here that Silver Story slow down slightly, using heart wrenching lyrics of “I am broken”, twisted within riffs that roar when needed.
