The Shiloh – proud winner of Almost Famous & Press2Plays by:Larm competition!
The Shiloh convey indie rock that has previously been non-existent in the otherwise fertile, prolific musical breeding grounds of Sweden: a sort of twilight-indie, drenched in melody, where gripping harmonies twist and turn through alternately vast soundscapes and fragile pop sensibilities. On the international scene, bands like Arcade Fire, Mew and Sigur Rós have garnered reverence using atmosphere, melody, and somewhat progressive overtones while Swedish bands sat beside and watched. Only one year into its existence, The Shiloh are changing this.
The Shiloh represents the epitome of ambition, but is gracefully devoid of pretention. The band graciously blends all components which have been missing from our lives; dreamlike ambiance and epic choruses clash with disrespectful experimentation and tempered collapse. The formula proved instantly successful – only a few months after the band came together, some of the biggest Swedish festivals invited this shooting star to their special guest-stages.
It is with a smooth, astute sense of detail that The Shiloh create their musical escapism. Using pianos, reverb-laden guitars, twitching rhythms and passionate vocals, ”Tiny Sparks, Massive Fires” tells of attempts to leave and strife to find new freedom in a cinematic and starkly emotional way.
