UK band Silvertwin brings the 70s flair back with their new nostalgic anthem “Ploy,” a track where they address the paranoia that comes with any new romance. Written by Silvertwin’s Isaac Shalam at his childhood home, “Ploy” is covered with the glimmering retro riffs that takes you back to another golden era of rock. Along with the track, Silvertwin has also shared a video for it where we get to see them through that vintage TV screen: 

“‘Ploy’ is kind of about the insecurity or paranoia that comes with a blooming relationship” shared Shalam. “I suppose initially I thought of the riff as my attempt at trying to write something Beach Boys-esque by having simple chords but a bass line that moved back and forth. It was a new style of song-writing for me as up until then I’d mostly used guitar, but I wanted to begin using piano as the anchor for the songs I was working on at the time.”

“Ploy” is from their upcoming record, which they’ll be sharing more details soon. The band will also be holding four socially distanced shows in May at Paper Dress Vintage in Hackney. Details below:
