"The Magical Party", the new track from The Silent Ones is now available on Kompakt Records !
"French duo THE SILENT ONES aka Aalik and Fred Traverso have specialized in their own brand of indie-infused electronic pop, putting a modern spin on vintage cold wave and minimal synth influences. MAGICAL PARTY is a prime example for their distinct melange of swirling melodies and catchy songwriting, an iridescent piece of dreamy musical drama with lots of charm. Known as incurable romanticist, fellow countryman JONAS BERING was the obvious choice for a remix, finally returning to Kompakt after his 2008 release CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU (KOMPAKT 172) - his immersive rework successfully trims the vocals and transplants the original's delicacy into a deep, but buoyant mover geared up for the distinguished floor. Pushing for a trance-inducing throb, the BEN WATTS mix is a fitting companion cut, promoting a slightly bouncier approach and seasoning its propulsive beats with tension-building synths for that special whiff of epic broadness."

(EN) The Silent Ones are the ghosts of Aalik and Fred Traverso. They are a french electro indie pop duo fond of dream pop, electro and cold wave sounds. They love vintage and less vintage synths, science fiction movies or movies in general, sounds from beyond, robots and angels, filters and stompboxes, translucid guitar sounds, nice clouds, old records, being silent (sometimes).
(FR) The Silent Ones c'est la rencontre d'Aalik et de Fred Traverso autour d'un projet electro indie pop. Mêlant synthétiseurs, autotune et sons de guitare planants, le duo nous plonge dans un univers (rétro) futuriste et rêveur peuplé de fantômes et d’histoires inachevées.
