Trailblazing talent Sandi Thom offers a timely message of hope after conflict on sparkling production “Silence,” taken from her upcoming EP Warpaint. With rich harmonies that ebb and flow beneath her soulful vocals, the track juxtaposes turbulence and darkness with an ever-present light of hope.
Weaving humming synths into her echoing vocal delivery, the haunting yet heartfelt melody climbs in intensity and sentiment before gently fading away leaving behind a climbs in intensity and sentiment.
Talking about the message behind the poignant track, she says, "'Silence’ is a song of Hope in desperation. A song of searching for answers within turbulence. It captures a moment in my darkest of times, within what seemed to be an endless ‘desert’ of despair…a time when pain seemed unbearable and my senses were numbed. Everything appeared to be a fog, a distant grey, a rust-like decay. So the song conveys the oscillation of emotions and questions – a way of making sense of my reality…my ‘silence’. And yet, through this silence there is an ever present light, a hope which releases from the pain.”
After making waves in 2005 with one of the first live-streamed concerts and sixteen years since the success of her first single “I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker,” Thom continues to innovate and evolve her artistry, constantly delivering eclectic yet timeless soundscapes.
