The Silkstones – The World Began With A Yes

Tuesday 11th, July 2017 / 13:10

 

By Monica Lockett

Independent

As I close my eyes and dream of summer road trips, the perfect playlist to accompany the long stretches of road is being curated. Thanks to The Silkstones latest release, The World Began With A Yes, my search for the quintessential summer album may be over.

Described as a departure from the Lethbridge-based group’s previous releases, the album relies on moody beats and dream-like vocals to create a visual that makes me want to jump in a convertible and cruise down the coast, while at the same time lay down on a sunny patch of grass and contemplate this big adventure we call life.

Taking inspiration from surf-rock legends The Beach Boys, indie-rocker Owen, George Harrison, Radiohead and U2, The World Began With A Yes is meant to pull us out of our headspace and realize just how precious a gift life is. The ambient underlying melodies act as a vessel, carrying us to the understanding of why we are the way we are. Everything happens for a reason, and this album aims to show us why.

Overall, The Silkstones have created an album that distinctly draws a line in the sand between it and their initial releases. I suspect this will become a daydreamer’s go-to album of the summer, as one may find it’s easy to get lost in the atmospheric dream-scape The Silkstones have built.
