Safety in Numbers' is the third single released by the Cardiff based Post-Punk / New Wave four piece Silent Forum on Libertino. Following on from the swaggering, off-kilter, infectious pop energy of 'How I Faked The Moon Landing' and 'Robot', 'Safety in Numbers' explores a far more reflective musical landscape. This is a song that "expresses the importance of looking after your friends... that time will forget us, but that our relationships are the most meaningful thing we can achieve in life."
Yet again Silent Forum delivers a song very much on their terms, a song that resonates with kindness and a musicality that captures your heart.
Performing under the name Silent Forum since late 2015, the four-piece deemed Wales' most promising band blends shadowy Post Punk with uplifting, inspiring New Wave. They move unpredictably from serious and direct to playful and overblown. Since they signed to Libertino records their sound has taken an ambitious turn, gathering praise for epic singles like 'How I Faked the Moon Landing' and 'Robot'. They have an eagerly awaited debut album set for release later this year.
Destroy//Exist "The sound sophisticated and playful at the same time, certainly reminiscent of the artful progressive pop sound of XTC, the nerve of Wire and the new wave idiosyncrasy of Squeeze
and Talking Heads, while maintaining the entirety of the quartet's fervent originality."
Adam Walton, BBC Radio
Wales "Silent Forum have an album planned for release on Libertino for next year, which I am really excited for. Both singles so far have been different but still recognisably them. There is something really interesting, almost PIL-like with those guitars."
