Premiere: Transistor Drop Dreamy EP 'Soft Burning Silver'

Friday 23rd February, 2018 2:49PM

Wellington trio Transistor have followed up their intoxicating recent single 'All You Remember' with a shiny new five-song sophomore EP titled Soft Burning Silver. The psychedelic collection dives deep into an otherworldly realm of fuzzed out grooves and faded vocals, finding a great balance between shoegaze dreaminess and chugging garage rock heft. You might have experienced the group tearing it up at the recent A Gathering In The Forest festival, we caught up with helmsman Lochie Noble who shined a light on the origins of Transistor's latest release and plans for the future. Read his words and listen up to Soft Burning Silver below...

"These new bunch of songs on 'Soft Burning Silver' developed over the course of 2017, with me writing them all at various points and laying down all the tracks at home. 'All You Remember’ was the first song off of the EP that I came up with, and was written around the same time as our previous single ‘Eyes’, though it was only about 60% then of what it is now. The rest of the tracks came about fairly easily too, all being fully written and demoed early last year. The reason it took quite a while was due to my personal goal of trying to get it to sound as good as it could be, with the limited recording resources and knowledge that I have at home. Compared to our first EP, I think the songwriting and sound of it all is a lot stronger and more representative of where I’m at now. The fourth track, ‘Endlessly’, is probably my favourite out of the lot I reckon, and feels the most accomplished to me, almost a cinematic type of feeling. A lot of the songs sound lighter, but feel much darker in atmosphere and all.

Our upcoming plans involve us playing this Saturday night at 7.30pm, on the Wellington waterfront (near Te Papa), as apart of the Performance Arcade festival. We’re very excited about it, and are blown away by the amount of great bands and artists playing too. After that, there’s a fundraiser show at Caroline, to raise money for the Wellington Rape Crisis foundation, alongside Unsanitary Napkin, Tidal Rave, and Ready Sett. Then a support slot for Dunedin band Sheep’s show at Moon on March 10th, as well as a few more coming in the pipeline. I also want our next release to come much sooner than it did for this one, hopefully an album by mid-late next year!”
