Track of the Day #808: Rare Monk – Silverlake

Rare Monk - SilverlakeSilverlake‘ is yet another banger taken from Portland, OR based band Rare Monk‘s latest album ‘Never Really Over‘ which was released on Friday! I absolutely love the buoyant bass on this track, it’s sublime and leads the track perfectly. This is complemented by intense, fuzzy guitars and the track becomes even more epic as it progresses.

Speaking of the track, Rare Monk have said: “Silverlake” was written in reaction to the Californian invasion we experienced living in Oregon and more specifically Portland. Our once – affordable artistic haven has become overrun by Californians moving into our city, looking for a similar “scene” at a lower cost and in turn raising our rent, all while complaining about the weather along the way.”

“All the things that outsiders complain about; the rain, the moss and mold, the overcast weather, is what makes Oregon and our city unique, so if you don’t like it, move back to where you came from!
