Silver Tongues - Black Kite REVIEW

Silver Tongues are a band out of Louisville, KY and bring with them a very humble rootsy 60's sound. They have a new album titled Black Kite which will be released on October 25th on the Karate Body Records label. The album itself consists of 9 songs all of which are very well constructed and bring with them a purpose.  The highlight track without a doubt is 'Ketchup', it only weighs in at 1:49 minutes long,  but it is the type of song that the repeat button is on stand by.  Some of the other highlights for me are the title track 'Black Kite' and 'Hope For' which both keep you on the edge of your seat with lead vocalist David Cronin belting out the lyrics.

Overall, Black Kite is somewhat of a rookie album.  There is a lot of potential here for Silver Tongues throwback rock sound, it just feels like they are in the early stages and it is all up hill from here.  I suspect their sound will continue to become more polished as they go forward in their musical endeavours.  But as for now Black Kite is a very respectable and honest listen.
