What began as a fun way for Bottomfeeders’ Chris Lyons to tinker with songs that didn’t work for that band became an entirely new project. The quartet, which formed in 2018, is comprised of Chris Lyons and Lucas Bogner of the band the Bottomfeeders, bassist Pete Campanelli and Kunal Prakash from Jeff the Brotherhood. Their first show was fittingly at ManRay Records in, of course, New Orleans.
Third Man co-founder/co-owner Ben Swank recalls the first time he saw Silver Synthetic perform: “It was one of those moments that immediately caught everyone’s attention in the room when they started playing, where you realize there is something special going down… I was floored by these incredible songs that felt familiar even though I’d never heard them before in that way that only great music does. There is a solid sense of history to these songs, but they are indebted to nobody and completely original. Excited for the world them.”
