Background

Gotta love the artwork huh? Straight out of the comic book covers of Kiss and obscure 70's band Furr and maybe also Starmen, this Greek/Finnish combo certainly have good taste.

First mentioned on Glory Daze back in 2019 (click Silvernite tag below), this female fronted outfit based in Greece straddle the fence of synthwave, pop rock and AOR, so their inclusion here is all but guaranteed. The synth overload is assured, and if there is a band that can hold suitcases of multiple genres in both hands - it's Silvernite.

The Songs

The prevailing style here is 80's themed pop rock with heavy synthwave influences. The album is kept organic thanks to lashings of electric guitar and the voice of Finnish vocalist Tanja Harkonen.

I'm loving tracks such as the title track 'Silvernite'. Tell me those synth stabs aren't GDM approved. Glorious stuff. The anthem 'True Survivor' also stands out as does the synthwave oriented 'Angel Of The City' with its synth bass and saxophone intrusions a feature.

'Danger Zone' is a guitar riff dominated track, though synth patterns run Riot throughout. 'Honestly' keeps things bright and shiny, while 'Broken Heart' could be described as Alyson Avenue lite whereas 'Iron Eagle' (not the King Kobra track) again stays true to the synthwave style.

In Summary

If you're into bands like Houston (albeit imagining they had a female singer) and Fire Tiger, then this is something worth listening to. The immense helpings of melodic synth work will assist those suffering from a sugar overload without reaching for the insulin. This will be in my playlist during March as it should be in yours.
