'Silenciety' demonstrates a world of tension and harmony, pairing opposites that slowly melt away to leave a more complete, less unilateral experience; both positive and the negative side by side complementing one another. ?There's not one track that sounds similar to another, yet they're all connected and nothing feels out of place. I felt there was no point making a fashionable album, as I'm more interested in a timeless body of work, something that doesn't sound like anything else, something you rarely get to hear?- 16B.
