Album Review: Silence by Alexis Taylor

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

Pitchfork - 74
Based on rating 7.4/10

Alexis Taylor's voice makes you root for him. It's high-pitched and delicate, yet also scrappy: the sound of a boy from the wrong side of the tracks learning that he can finally show his sensitivity, having outgrown his bullies. The friction between Taylor's persona, lyrics, and delivery has always been part of what makes his art so compelling. Bouncing along to the laddish antics of his long-time group Hot Chip, singing about playing Xbox or professional wrestling, Taylor's immaculate phrasing and gossamer tone catch us by surprise.

Silence marks Alexis Taylor‘s sixth solo album away from his day job of Hot Chip, and it remains an intriguing proposition to see how he embraces a completely different side of his musical personality. For, while Hot Chip are mostly known for their floor-filling disco, Taylor’s solo material is far more introspective. Silence continues this journey, consisting of 12 tracks built around piano and centred about Taylor’s affectingly fragile vocals.
