Silent Scream is a game changer, it is a classic and more importantly it has a message we should all embrace and if that’s not enough and you want something else a little lighter to enjoy, watch a really , really brilliant band performing in the great outdoors…do you remember those days…but seriously Millie’s on a mission and you need to join her.
Released ahead of the hugely anticipated album, Telling Truths, Breaking Ties, Silent Screams is the song Millie Manders & The Shutup have always seemed destined to release. A delirious mix of punk, ska, pop and dagger-sharp lyrics, it sees Millie Manders and the Shutup as one of the UK’s most exciting acts. At a time when fear and the unknown seems rife in the world, Silent Screams is a message to those feeling at their lowest that there is always hope.
Although it features many of the hooks, riffs and sheer power that fans have come to expect from Millie Manders & the Shutup, it is Silent Screams’ lyrical contact which really hits home hard. Dealing with suicidal thoughts and the feeling of being trapped, Silent Screams is typical of a band whose commitment to social justice is as ingrained in them as their love of music. With both Millie and George in the band constantly battling against mental health issues, there’s a truth and poignancy to the track which magnifies the song’s power immensely. Silent Screams feels destined to become an anthem for those feeling imprisoned by their own thoughts.
