Biography

The Silk Demise newest album, Midnight Eyes, features the composition and production work of Bill Litshauer. plus the lyrics & vocals of Edie Marshall. Spanning fourteen tracks, the album crosses genres blending trip-hop, rock, and dance - all in a darker vein with a few occasions where the mood is bright. From the onset, Wildfire sets the tone, followed by a completely remastered version of Heroin Chic, and the dance hit Smoke and Mirrors. The piece closes with two powerful guitar driven tracks - The Greys, and Trails. Fans of Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps, Mogwai & Goldfrapp, may feel at home, whilst listening.

Review for the self-titled debut:

Hailing from Toronto, The Silk Demise offer up sensual, stripped-down trip-hop on their self-titled debut. Combining the talents of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Bill Litshauer and lyricist/vocalist Olivia Zielinski, the band’s sound falls somewhere between Massive Attack and the moody trip-hop found on Akira Yamaoka’s soundtracks to the later Silent Hill games.

Blending sultry female vocals, occasional half-whispered male vocals a la Tricky, and music that emphasizes atmospheric sound with sometimes sparser melodic work, the their first, self-titled album is an extremely competent and immaculately produced blend of dark, electronic-yet-organic trip-hop with a slightly experimental slant.
