Silva 2013 Press Statement
Memﬁs announce the April 6th release date for their third release Silva. It’s the bands ﬁrst new recording since Vertigo (recorded 2008, released 2011). Silva marks a new beginning for the band, putting the label issues to the past. It’s released digitally as pay-what-you- want by the band themselves via www.memﬁsband.com. It’s also going to be available on iTunes, Spotify and all the other big digital vendors.
Silva is the celebration of Memﬁs 10 year anniversary. It’s a story about the scandinavian wilderness: rabid elks, deadly fungi - and loving penguins. The sound is inﬂuenced by German kraut bands (Tangerine Dream/Can) as well as 70’s prog (King Crimson/Camel/ Bo Hansson). Memﬁs skipped the difﬁcult third album, and is moving towards new musical grounds. The EP format allows for a compact and effective release with no ﬁller tracks - quality over quantity.
