I've not encountered Danish "digital power rock" trio Silo before, but their last release was 12 years ago when I was a mere teen so I suppose I can be forgiven. The music here is sparse and repetitive, a kind of robotised mutation of minimal rock music. Their singer has a breathy and slightly sinister voice that immediately reminds me of Trent Reznor, but the stripped back repetition of the music takes it more into Poison Arrows territory.

'Cabinn Fever' is notable for its collaboration with Antipop Consortium's High Priest and M. Sayyid, a shuddering industrial rock monster with some meaty hip-hop flows, but this lot are more than capable of holding their own without the help of guest stars. They may have been dormant for over a decade but their precisely stomping and slightly broken-sounding electro rock sounds perfectly up to date, crisp and threatening, with awkwardly grinding rhythms repeated until they feel natural and danceable and all manner of clipped and distorted melodic fragments giving the whole affair a rumbling momentum.

It provides an intriguing backdrop for what are essentially dark pop songs. It's crunchy, intricate and sophisticated darkpop with quite a unique sound. Worth a listen.
