"Unwittingly, I fell into the dreamy world of tropical pop. The beauty in their new EP #1 was immediate and refreshing" - Joonbug: New York
Silver Firs is a Bern based six-piece combining elements of folk, dreampop and tropical rhythms, with an obvious affinity to world percussion. The band formed in 2011 and since then followed a strict DIY credo when recording and producing their songs.
This concept paid off. While Silver Firs were still relatively unknown in their home country, their releases gained a lot of attention & blog love abroad. A few days after the song "Motherland" was posted on SoundCloud, it reached #4 on Hype Machine’s charts of the «Most Popular Tracks on Blogs Now». Features on Bandcamp, Indie Shuffle, Pigeons & Planes, KEXP and varioius online magazines followed. Their latest EP#2 got airplay on more than 75 radio stations in the USA and Canada and made it into the CMJ Charts for 3 weeks.
