Silver Relics - Generic.

Silver Relics is a New York City-based rock band formed by vocalist/multi instrumentalist/songwriter Alex Sepassi and drummer Justin Alvis.

Drawing influence from the iconic British songwriters of the 1960s and 1970s and brooding '80s rock, Silver Relics deliver a psychedelic sound that simultaneously smolders and electrifies with fierce energy, conjuring vibrant technicolor dreams and scenes of breathtaking adventure.

After relocating to New York in the Spring of 2017, Sepassi and Alvis were determined to record a collection of songs prior to their departure. "What makes these songs different for me is how we were able to capture a snapshot of all the things that surround a life changing move in a very short period of time... the excitement, the uncertainty, the risk, the anticipation, the massive fucking anxiety just to name a handful," Sepassi says. "I think these are experiences that a lot of people go through often and you certainly don't have to move across the country to identify with this concept. It's very human."

Silver Relics continue to resonate with their listeners and to extend their reach since they began performing on New York stages in late 2017. Their live performance and style has often been compared to their artistic influences: Depeche Mode, The Cure, Duran Duran, Joy Division, The Verve, Nirvana, The Stone Roses, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, The Doors, Pink Floyd and The Beatles.

Silver Relics have just released their debut album, Generic.: throbbing with urgency, it is a thrilling collection that focuses on change and all of the complicated feelings that go with it.
