Silent Forum are an art rock band from Cardiff. Their latest single ‘Safety In Numbers’ is released through all platforms on May 10 via Libertino Records. An intimate guitar riff meets intricate vocal sequencing. ‘Safety In Numbers’ is a warm, touching song expressing the importance of looking after your friends. It captures a calm clarity accepting that as individuals, time will forget us, but that our relationships are the most meaningful impact we can achieve.
The single is featured alongside the curiously titled, anthemic jangle pop b-side ‘I Used to Hate Angry Young Men But Now I’m One Of Them’.
Silent Forum set out to eschew many of the tired tropes of modern indie bands whilst retaining a righteous sense of fun and drawing upon a number of influences new and old to craft a sound confidently their own. Signed to Carmarthen’s Libertino Records, the band have an album in the works and a tour will follow. Upcoming gigs include a main support set for post-punk/soul legends Algiers at Clwb Ifor Bach in July.
