The New York City outfit, The Silk Wars, shares their latest with the single “Blue Hour” off of Come Evening, their debut full length album. This is the first release following their 2019 single, “Velvet.” Members, Alexandra Blair [singer, lyricist], James Mullen [guitar, songwriter, producer], Angelo Miliano [keyboards], Josh O’Guinn [bass], and Andrew Mega [drums], continue to lend their talents to the group’s hypnotic blend of alternative and gothic electronic with this new single.
Drawing on the moments of dusk after the sun sets and night really sets in, “Blue Hour” taps into something dark and spins it into a percussive and stylish single. The band said of the story behind the song:
In a time of waiting that is the pandemic, we are all waiting for things to go away, to come back, to find our true selves again. To see the Blue Hour is to live in waiting; waiting for someone to make your life better because you don’t know how. We urge the listener and viewer of the music video for ‘Blue Hour’ to become aware of the self, in all of the anxiety, the depression, the waiting, because it all serves as a platform for the self. We embrace this darkness and we cannot wait for everyone to immerse themselves in it.
The Silk War’s debut, Come Evening, is due out in full on May 14th.
