“A phenomenal synth-rock experience featuring brooding instrumentals and haunting vocal performances” The CD Critic
“A very promising band trying and succeeding at something really quite hard to execute”
Alex Baker – Kerrang! Radio
“Silhouettes might just have released one of the singles of the year” Louder Than War
“I love Gold Tag” Jack Parker – Amazing Radio
“Atmospherically beautiful” Listen With Monger
“Thumping electronica with mind bending rock-out pieces and falsetto vocals. Not to be missed!”
Influenced by the likes of John Grant, Massive Attack and Bon Iver, Silhouettes’ debut album twists and turns from haunting pin-drop falsetto sparseness to crunching post-punk guitars and pumping Moroder-esque electro with a beat and swagger to match their fashionable B-Town neighbours.
Songwriter/vocalist Nathan came across the title ‘Ever Moving Happiness Machines’ in an Adam Curtis documentary, The Century of the Self, which described how Freudian philosophy was used by the U.S. Government to convert society into consumers:
“I think the title ties the album together well. The songs are mostly about the awakening of the self within a society obsessed with the vacuous ends of consumerism. The epiphany leads to a transformation of the self through a pursuit of deeper, more natural truths about happiness.”
