Dublin art-rock quintet Silverbacks are today sharing “Rolodex City”, the latest track to be taken from their upcoming new album Archive Material which is set for release on January 21st 2022 and via Full Time Hobby.

Pre-order the album here.

As Silverbacks release more new music from the follow-up to their Choice Music Prize-nominated debut album Fad, a picture of the band’s sardonic, often surrealist view of the characters and communities in their lives becomes clearer. New track “Rolodex City” is perhaps the most forensic in how it approaches its story of the latest anti-hero to find themselves under the Silverbacks microscope. Vocalist and guitarist Daniel O’Kelly comments further on the song.

“Rolodex City is about a property mogul who has fallen on very hard times during a period where technology has changed the way his business and people work. Similar to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid getting caught out by the trains, bicycles and an increasingly small world, Mr Rolodex is running out of options. He visits a town in a barren landscape with the hope of flipping a bit of land, posing as whatever character the people there will trust – Rolodex City.

Ultimately, our anti-hero has no luck and reluctantly ends his trip at a line dance led by Emma – feel free to join in!

To help set the scene, we used a live drum sound and contrasting drum machine claps and mechanical percussion. The guitars are inspired by the twang of country music with some Verlaine techniques employed on the solo, for the riff spotters.”
