Rock quartet Silent Siren struck gold earlier this year with “Fujiyama Disco,” a lightly dusted funk number that did well with fans in Japan. It was the latest song to soar from a group that came together in 2010, riding an initial wave of Harajuku-adjacent interest but eventually locking in to their vibe entirely. Now, they return with new single “Just Meet":
Where “Fujiyama Disco” entertained dance elements, “Just Meet” plays out as a pure pop-rock ramble. The four-piece drives forward almost immediately, delivering zippy guitar lines and sweet singing all building to a big bounce-along of a hook. It’s right in the Silent Siren comfort zone; up-tempo, never resting and building towards something that will probably be fun to sing along with at a concert.
The video above splits time between relatively straightforward shots of the band performing and footage of them cooking up...something. This is the short version, after all, so knowing what the final culinary item is will have to wait for another day. But all the more reason to look forward to October 11.
