Harris’ Song of the Week: Silhouettes by Colony House

I’ll admit that it’s been far too long since a song resonated with me. When you hear a song for the first time, you absorb it and then it does one of two things inside your brain. Either it leaves, or does not leave an impression. For some reason, this song by Colony House left an impression and it seemed like a fitting return to my longest running column.

The American band has been around for a few years now and released their debut EP When I Was Younger back in July. The lead single from that album is “Silhouette” and it is a thing of beauty.

In a way that only a catchy guitar rift can, this song will be stuck in your head. The vocals almost seem secondary although they do carry us forward. It’s the upbeat strokes of the guitar that resonate and make this song standout. That upbeat sound doesn’t come with ccompromisedpower. As the song hits its breakdown and final chorus, the guitar grows even louder, culminating in an epic climax, trailing off into the distance.

Keep an eye on Colony House as we head into the winter.
