LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts)
Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER were in the midst of preparing for the release of their upcoming EP when the global coronavirus pandemic brought everything to a quick halt. The result, a new track and video for "Quarantined in California" which has already garnered 68,700 views on YouTube. The band-Peter Argyropoulos: vocals, guitar, Brina Kabler: keys, vocals, Kevin
Haaland: lead guitar, Adam Kury: bass, Dave Krusen: drums- wrote, recorded and filmed all from their homes throughout Southern California.
"It's one of those classic stories of a song that pops into your head in the middle of the night," Peter
Argyropoulos says. "I made a quick recording on my phone, sent it to the band and, the next thing I know, everyone's recording their parts at home. Dave tracked his drums and sent them to Adam. Adam tracked his bass and sent everything to Kevin. Kevin
did the guitars and sent all the tracks back to Brina and I. We did the vocals and mixed it and that was that. To be honest, I wasn't sure we'd even release it, but Kevin's guitars gave what was otherwise a campfire song, some Social Distortion-like edge. The video was frosting on the cake because we had no plan other than 'have fun with it' and, because of that, it genuinely captures each of our personalities. Shot on our iPhones, one take for each of us. The edit is raw because it suits the approach and the times. And no, the part where I push Brina away when I sing 'social distance long at last' wasn't planned, but she did a good job of playing along."
With their forthcoming EP Rude Awakenings (details of which will be announced soon), SONS OF SILVER carries on the rock 'n' roll tradition that stirs up dialogue and discourse, with rip-roaring riffs, bluesy rhythms and provocatively poetic lyrics. Under the previous name of Peter
RG, the group built a catalog of two EPS-Lightning Strikes  and Reaching for the Moon -and the 2017 full-length Tender Souls. Recharged as SONS OF SILVER in 2019, they served up the singles "Never Enough
" and "Down."
