Silent Runners (Amsterdam, NL) will release their new album Statues & Ornaments on June 3rd 2022 on Cold Transmission Music. Pre-orders for CD, vinyl and digital downloads are available on Bandcamp, starting April 22. The news is celebrated with a single and music video: Perfect Place to Hide, available on all platforms the same day.
Statues & Ornaments shows a slight shift in direction for Silent Runners. Featuring a heavier emphasis on post-punk influences and more drum driven songs, without compromising the iconic mix of synths, guitars and deep vocals the band became known for.
Statues & Ornaments pre-order is available on the Silent Runners Bandcamp:
NEW SINGLE & VIDEO: PERFECT PLACE TO HIDE
Perfect Place to Hide is a song about hiding from reality in the things we buy and consume: it’s about yet another hype and the small burst of joy we get from buying and owning stuff we don’t necessarily need.
The new single combines a deceptively cheerful first impression with a darker underlying theme, about advertising and an over-commercialised world where human interaction is reduced to monetary transactions and where some of us have turned into personified ads in influencer marketing. The accompanying music video is a clear parody on the modern shopping channel, but there’s one catch: every item on sale is pitch black, reflecting the dark side of consumerism.
