The Silent Comedy are from of San Diego, California. They are an interesting band founded by the brothers Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman in 2006. They have released 2 full-length records and 2 EP’s and Friends divide is their latest effort. This EP was produced by Chris “Frenchie” Smith from The Darkness, Jet, Gregg Rolie, The Answer. This album basically sounds massive. The vocals are spot-on, the guitar work biting and the melodies are haunting. Musically speaking it is typical American music, with strong memorable hooks and choruses, excellent crystal clear vocal work and songs that stick in your head. These include tracks such as the lovely mid tempo Always Two and the southern rock fried Light of Day. 6 songs are included in total and this band definitely has got what it takes to become a bigger name. Their sound is rich and attractive enough for both the rock and indie/folk fans among us. Rival Sons (during the few rockier tunes) meets Mumford And Sons. This is what happens when they go folky and indie during the 2nd part of the EP. But The Silent Comedy has their own unique sound, which actually is a good thing! Go check them out.
