Welcome to Silent Runners
Mixing dark synths and electronics with post-punk influences, Silent Runners (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) made a name for themselves on stage with energetic shows that are both compelling and strangely hypnotizing. Minimalist guitars, deep bass riffs and steady drum beats, going from an almost krautrock-like drive to all out bombastic. All topped with classic synths and a powerful voice, soaked in reverb.
Following their self-titled 6-track Silent Runners EP in 2015, the band released their debut album The Directory in December 2017. The 11-track album features lengthy brooding tracks with enthralling beats and a heavier emphasis on synth-driven compositions.
