At the speed that music moves these days, weeks feel like months, months like years, especially in between releases. With that in mind, it seems like it has been forever since we received new music from Perth producer Silva. His last release was a flip of the Dreamville smash ‘Sacrifices’ last summer. A lot has happened since then. As he took time away from music to focus on University, fans have been eagerly awaiting a fresh drop from the Australian. Back with a new single and a new focus comes ‘orchid.’
“This track to me has a strong combination of original/old elements of my production combined with more experimental aspects. For me personally I love the atmosphere I have created in the track – it feels really unique.” – Silva
The latest offering is what makes Silva so special; blurring the lines between genres and sounds while clearly honing in on the feels. Ghostly vocals and snappy percussion carry ‘orchid’ into a drop that’s simply spellbinding. Riddled with emotion and a multitude of layers, the track feels like walking through a graveyard on a late summer’s eve. Foreboding yet enchanting, its possesses a stirring allure while maintaining a slight sense of darkness. ‘orchid’ is finding beauty in the unnerving. A fitting return in these uncertain times.
