In a conversation with Argyropoulos, he mentions how the members worked together in other projects before evolving into a band and writing songs together. Make no mistake, as you listen to Doomsday Noises you hear that Sons of Silver is very much a band with each person involved in the writing and working together to create the sound of the band. Argyropoulos mentions that each member has diverse musical tastes, from Radiohead to Fugazi to The Clash, but when they get together to play all of those influences melt into a rock n’ roll band.
Press the PLAY Icon below for my interview with Peter Argyropolous:
The passion Aryropolous has for history and politics finds its way into the lyrics. Tracks like “Deep Division” and “Outbreak”, both written long before the nation fell into quarantine, can almost be heard as the Nation Anthems of 2020. When describing how his lyrics form, Aryropolous says that the aggression of the music feeds the bent of the lyric and that key lyrics usually come to him as the band is playing. When talking about the band’s incendiary single “Read ‘Em Their Rights”, the singer points out in its early performances the song had no chorus. While playing the song one night he inserted the title and guitarist Haaland commented later how good it fits.
