Cumbrian Indie Rockers, The Silver Bars, release fearless stomper 'So It Goes'!

The Silver Bars' new single 'So it Goes' is an energetic, ballsy track. It starts with a hooky, urgent guitar, backed by a boisterous bassline that skitters around your ears.


The five-piece, who hail from Barrow-in-Furness, are going from strength to strength this year. Their EP 'No Luxuries' came out at the start of 2021, followed by singles 'Big Part, The Morning', and 'The Long Night', the latter being a very impressive five-minute track, with Dylan Grafton’s vocals echoing those of Alex Turner’s in places.



'So it Goes' is another unique, fearless stomper they can add to their arsenal. The first time the chorus comes around, most of the heavy production falls away and is driven along by the drums, making it spacious. Grafton’s vocals are endlessly entertaining to listen to, and there is certainly never a dull syllable.


Then, around the halfway mark of the song, things seriously pick up, and the glorious chaos is sustained throughout the rest of the track. Everything briefly slows down during the perfectly formed bridge before exploding once again. The last 20 seconds of the song sound like jumping up and down at a tightly packed gig, bodies jostling against each other. Just as frantically as it started, the song ends, somewhat abruptly, and we are jolted back into reality. “So it goes” Grafton roars, as if delivering an anthemic conclusion.
