Silence will be the fourth single to be taken from 'Breath' Leaves Debut album, The Icelandic Trio's new single 'Silence' (as the title suggests) is a gentle melodic piece.

The single is reminiscent of an easy going Beatles track although it does have an added darker emotion that is conjured up in the lyrics beautifully delivered by vocalist Arnar Gudjonsson, accompanied by a purely nave and thoroughly uplifting backing track, the singers voice isn't strikingly diverse however it does contain a mellow whispered sound coupled with a slightly broken edge that helps to emphasize the tracks poignant message. The inoffensive track doesn't shock or horrify but undeniably starts to move you the more you hear it. A gentle and thought provoking release and quite a typical fourth single, hopefully this will be the track that drives 'Leaves' further into the U.K music industries main beam.
