Silver Rocket. Heading towards the sky (PL)

Silver Rocket is the project of one man, Mariusz Szypura. Previously playing on Happy Pills, a group on the universe of the Pixies, Galaxie 500 and Sonic Youth, he is to release, this month, Silver Rocket's second album, Unhappy Songs.

For this release he invited some of the best Polish artists nowadays. Ania Dąbrowska, Marsija from Locostar, Novika, Tomek Ziętek, from Pink Freud, Kasia Nosowska, Old Time Radio,....

In concert, he has had the pleasure to support Mum, The Sea And Cake, Mogwai and Arab Strap, among others.

Unhappy Songs is full of beautiful atmospheric pop songs, mellow sounds, guitars, ..... There's Mercury Rev in the air, eyes to Billy Idol, and synths on the encore.
It is difficult to listen to such tracks as "Nothing is forever" and not to close one's eyes and dream.....

The album can be bought here, at Sklep Terra, from the 27th of January.

You can find him, in concert, on the 21st of February, in Warsaw, Poland, at Fabryka Trzciny.

Meanwhile, here are some appetisers:
