SILVERTONE HILLS – “WDYTMF”
Silvertone Hills do indie-rock the way you wish it still was — earnest, tenacious, and unpretentious. From Hamilton, Ontario, the five-piece fuses memorable melodies with jangling guitars and energetic grooves. In the Hills, late ’60s pop influence meets the sonic textures of modern rock, harmonizing into something innovative yet familiar, like meeting a new friend with an old soul.
“WDYTMF” is the second single from their upcoming debut LP, Limits. This collection of songs represents Silvertone Hills’ most eclectic material. Set for release this October, the band are not so patiently queueing up fresh electric melodies for the rock masses.
It starts with a Keith Richards-y riff. Once the dirty feel was established the spitty, call-out lyrics came naturally. Then the bridge slows down and gives you a glimpse of calm euphoria, only to have the guitars smack it away.
“What do you take me for?!” That’s what our singer Liam O’Sullivan first shouted over the Keith Richards-esque guitar riff as a placeholder for lyrics. The line stuck, and shaped the attitude for the whole song.
“The tune is an energetic anthem for leaving dead weight behind, propelled by chugging guitars and spitty melodies.”
