Silent Forum

Silent Forum are a post-punk band which flit from cold and brooding to anthemic and overbold with ease. Humorous lyrics centred around office work, the Welsh music scene and life in the UK during lockdown give listeners a different, amusing take on their inner workings during both mundane and extraordinary events. The group’s primary motivation is to surprise and entertain, giving listeners pop music which excites by pushing them slightly outside of their comfort zone. Their live persona reflects this, with vocalist Richard Wiggins diving around on stage and getting het up amongst the audience, something the band have not been able to indulge in since March.

In late 2019 the band released their debut album Everything Solved at Once which was the culmination of several year’s efforts. It felt like the group had “arrived” at a sound, neither the fresh faced, excitably indie of their formative years, nor the straight up angsty post-punk of their early EPs, rather – something in between. Lockdown has pushed Silent Forum away from live music meaning they are already focusing on their next effort which is seemingly even hookier and more immediate.
