‘Safety in Numbers’ is the third single released by the Cardiff based Post-Punk / New Wave four piece Silent Forum on Libertino out on the 10th of May. Following on from the swaggering, off-kilter, infectious pop energy of ‘How I Faked The Moon Landing’ and ‘Robot’, ‘Safety in Numbers’ explores a far more reflective musical landscape. This is a song that “expresses the importance of looking after your friends……that time will forget us, but that our relationships are the most meaningful thing we can achieve in life.”
Performing under the name Silent Forum since late 2015, the four-piece deemed Wales’ most promising band blends shadowy Post Punk with uplifting, inspiring New Wave. They move unpredictably from serious and direct to playful and overblown. Since they signed to Libertino records their sound has taken an ambitious turn, gathering praise for epic singles like ‘How I faked the Moon Landings’ and ‘Robot’. They have an eagerly awaited debut album set for release later this year.
