Elephants in Silent Rooms – “Birds Don’t Lie”


German band Elephants in Silent Rooms strut an enveloping psych-rock spell throughout their new track “Birds Don’t Lie.” Moody guitar tones, with a wintry post-punk pulse alongside the thumping bass, compare favorably to Wild Beasts.

The lead vocals’ emergence aligns with a glistening guitar injection, layered alongside serene synth touches with a spacey elegance. There’s a steady contrast between exuberant guitar-based glistening and laid-back atmospherics, culminating beautifully in the soaring interlude prior to the two-minute mark. Bouncy organs adorn a satiating conclusion, embracing a thoroughly hypnotic direction with the backing wordless vocal haunts and powerful title-referencing refrain.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2022’ Spotify playlist.
