Premiere: Broken Spear reveals “Silent Energy” feat. Sluurpee
“Silent Energy (feat. Sluurpee)” is Broken Spear’s first single since November 2016, when their debut album True was released on Pedicure Records. The first preview of Seb Choe’s upcoming sequel album titled Truth Pieces, “Silent Energy” is an evolution towards something new—a reflection of Choe’s shifting insight into their own artistic lens.
Fans of Purity Ring, Crystal Castles, Grimes, and CHVRCHES will fawn over Broken Spear's production, which pits a brooding synth against Sluurpee's pristine vocals. Sluurpee sings with a confessional lyricism and glossy softness, reflected in the accompanying manga-style single artwork by NYC visual artist Aida Cheng. A bare-bones drum machine is fleshed out with cinematic swells and glittering harps, and while there is a darkness to the track, "Silent Energy" is undeniable pop fun. Truth Pieces is slated to be released in Spring 2018.
See Broken Spear perform at Queer Valentine’s Day at Trans Pecos on Wednesday, 2/14.
