From the depths of the Pacific Northwest emerges a dynamic musical entity ready to invigorate the local music scene. Silk Letdown arrives with their inaugural single Big Blue, delivering a vibrant, energetic, and funky sound evocative of the golden age of alt-rock.

Big Blue delivers high-energy with electrifying riffs and irresistible melodies, blending 90s and 00s grunge with contemporary flair for a nostalgic yet innovative sound.

“I wanted to capture the essence and beauty of Big Sur in an imagery-driven song while also personifying the coastal range as an elegant and beautiful woman in a way similar to how we say “Mother Earth” or “Gaia.” The whole song came together in my head very effortlessly which does not always happen, but when it does, it feels magical. Once I got home to my guitar, it sounded exactly how I’d imagined and I filled in the verses with a groove that was mostly inspired by Facelift (Alice in Chains) which I was listening to a lot at the time. Some songs you write and love because they were challenging or took a long time to come together. For me, I love Big Blue because of how naturally and easily it came together. It just felt right due to the inspiration and appreciation for life and music I felt at the time.” 

Silk Letdown’s sound resonates with fans of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, and Stone Temple Pilots, offering a diverse blend of jazz, blues, and West Coast prog rock. Big Blue showcases the band’s genre-hopping prowess, providing a head-thrashing experience for all listeners, regardless of their musical preferences.

With anticipation building for their biggest year yet, Silk Letdown is ready to hit the road and promote their latest single. Their electrifying sound promises to leave a lasting impact, with Big Blue signaling the beginning of an exciting journey for both the band and their loyal fanbase.
