Local post-punk quartet The Silence Kit have dropped a new song called “I Could Be” off of their forthcoming LP Watershed, set for release next month. With slightly affected vocals, a dark and ominous bass line and distorted guitars, the song hits the classic notes of post-punk before blending in a brass section that draws the song into brighter waters, if only for short bursts at a time. There’s nothing to suggest that The Silence Kit was not a cult favorite in the 80s, their sound is so steeped in the moody, inverted psychedelia tones of Echo and the Bunnymen and The Cure. Take a listen to “I Could Be” below. The Silence Kit will celebrate the release of Watershed at Bourbon and Branch on April 5th; tickets and information can be found here.
