SILK – ‘Moments’ ft KiLLOWEN
Continuing his meteoric rise into 2024, the UK’s latest breakthrough electronic artist SILK heralds a new EP and UK tour with his stunning new single ‘Moments’ ft KiLLOWEN, out on 26th January.
‘Moments’ sees SILK crafting another euphoric banger high in both BPM and emotion. Framed around a poignant stream-of-consciousness lead vocal from London artist KiLLOWEN, the producer constructs a stunning soundscape out of throbbing synths, backed by an intricate garage groove. This is another unforgettable single from the breakthrough Brit.
The track will feature on the EP Regret The Morning, out on February 23rd, and fans will have a chance to hear it on SILK’s UK tour in March, with dates at Manchester’s YES Pink Room, Bristol’s Rough Trade and London’s The Garage on 5th, 6th & 7th March, as well as a DJ set at Ministry of Sound on the 9th February alongside Biscits and Goodboys.
Regret The Morning is an eclectic collection that shows off SILK’s full suite of talents, ranging from addictive pop hooks to thoughtful ambient instrumentals. “We currently live in a time when music is consumed so passively, so whilst writing ‘Regret The Morning’, I really set out to write a full-bodied piece of work that would represent exactly where I am as an artist right now”, says SILK.
“I really love the fact that we basically have an ‘indie pop’ song in the form of the title track ‘Regret The Morning’ and an ambient garage instrumental with ‘P.A.K.T.S’ on the same EP… it is a physical embodiment of everything I love about music and everything I set out to achieve in writing music up until this point in my career, I couldn’t be prouder of it and I hope people can connect to it as much as I have.”
The announcement follows a busy year of touring for SILK, including a hugely successful Aus + NZ tour with Australian DJ and producer Golden Features as well as a string of debut UK festival dates, finishing off with a closing set at Leeds Festival in front of 25,000 people, as well as his SOLD OUT debut headline London show in September. SILK has clocked some impressive numbers across the board including 35 million catalogue streams, 55 million TikTok views as well as a plethora of international radio love.
‘Moments’ follows ‘Last Time’ ft EVALINA, the late summer banger ‘On My Mind’, the smash collaboration ‘Reason’ with Paige Cavell, as well as the huge success of previous single ‘Quiver’, which has amassed over 30 million global streams to date across all platforms, plus major radio support on both sides of the pond with SiriusXM’s Diplo’s Revolution in the US, as well as BBC Radio 1 and KISS in the UK. The rising star has also had key press features in Wonderland, NOTION and more, gained over 55 million TikTok views and counting, and received support from renowned Youtube channel Selected.
SILK’s meteoric rise has been nothing short of a miracle. From quitting his job to pursue his music career at the beginning of 2022 to now growing a social following of 87k+ in the space of a year, his feel-good production and infectious personality have gained plaudits on a global level.
Hailing from Hayes Town, West London, 23-year-old KiLLOWEN is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter and vocalist. Picking up his first instrument at the tender age of eight, producing by 13 and writing at 14, he is now pushing forward with his own unique sound fusing UK Garage, Rap, Dance and Soul. With numerous support from the likes of Complex, NTS, DUMMY and BBC 1/ 1 Xtra, the future looks bright for this young artist.
‘Moments’ is another irresistible release from SILK – and a signal of things to come this year, which is set to be a huge leap forward in this breakthrough electronic artist’s unstoppable rise to stardom.
