Silent Skies, featuring Tom S. Englund (Evergrey, Redemption) and Vikram Shankar (Redemption, Lux Terminus, Threads Of Fate) are gearing up to release their full length debut album. They have released an official video for new single "Solitude". Check it out below.
Soulfood Music Distribution’s inhouse label Sweet Lemon recently announced the signing of Silent Skies.
Tom S. Englund, vocalist of Swedish band Evergrey, and Vikram Shankar's ways crossed when Englund saw Shankar re-interpret one of his compositions on piano on YouTube. A swift email suggesting a collaboration gave birth to ideas of a musical landscape rooted in cinematic, film score music, driven by Shankar's tender and emotive piano playing, but with the added sound of Englund's unique and charismatic vocals and strong melodic sensibility. The compositions are both bleak and hopeful, setting a sombre tone, and with lyrics that stem from self-reflection and existential contemplation, the atmospheric music of Silent Skies is engrossing and hypnotizing, evoking in the listener visions for the inner eye.
Silent Skies debuted with their single “Horizons”, which includes three different versions of the song. “Horizons” is available now on all streaming services and YouTube. It was recorded and produced in Sweden and USA by Vikram Shankar and Tom S Englund, mixed by Christer-André Cederberg, Cederberg Studios Kristiansand, Norway.
