Introducing Hybrid Pop - the NEW face and sound of Electronic Pop Music
December 15, 2009 (Rochester, New York) - Rochester, New York based Electronic Pop band Silent Auction has released their newest CD entitled "Good Girl Remix EP" on December 15.
This release has six tracks, three of which are original and self produced Silent Auction songs and the remaining three are, as the title suggests, colorful and unique remixes of the title track. All six tracks joined on one disc create a landscape of energy and sound, combining the fierce pulse of an underground electronic dance club with the crisp lyrics and catchy hooks of the new generation of pop music. Although this is the band's sixth self-released album, it reflects a solid new direction into modern Electronic Pop.
This new release marks a huge step for us as writers and performers says Terri Snyder, who is co-writer, co-producer and female vocals for Silent Auction.We're showing everyone that we're not afraid to take risks. We've accepted our personal challenge to break the obvious barrier between underground/industrial and pop music. We're fans of both and this EP shows it."
Jason, founding member of Silent Auction and the other co-writer, co-producer and male vocals adds, "Our passion for heavy synthetic sounds, percussive details and colorful melodies has really brought us together in our writing styles. Terri and I are collaborating now more than ever! It's so exciting." With a chuckle he adds, "I guess you could call it 'Hybrid Pop'.
The "Good Girl Remix EP" is now available on most digital download sites, including iTunes, Amazon, and Napster. Having only been available for promotional use for two weeks, it has already been requested by DJs across the United States. The band's website, www.silentpro.com
, is experiencing the highest traffic count it has ever seen. Releasing this EP on their own has become a journey through local talent (album cover illustration, marketing strategies), self-taught mixing and mastering, and cost effective merchandising (screen printing their own t-shirts).
Voted by the general public as one of Rochester's top four original bands in 2009, Silent Auction is certainly breaking out of its previous underground shell. The band is compromised of Jason Barbero, Terri Snyder, and drummer Brendan Bulson. They are currently preparing their live performance to adjust to this release and their upcoming full length album, due to be released in the Spring/Summer of 2010. Also, Silent Auction's song "Deliverance" will be on the upcoming "Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music to Cure Cancer" release under Metropolis Records, due out February 9, 2010. This five CD benefit compilation features 83 of the world's leading Electronic/Industrial artists joining forces to raise money for cancer research. Silent Auction was invited to donate a hopeful song for this compilation.
