One year ago three music enthusiasts from San Sebastian launched Ayo Silver! in an attempt to bring the Gipuzkoan capital and its surrounding area to the cutting edge of independent music. During this last year alone Ayo Silver! has released five albums and organised dozens of concerts. Thanks to them, the various acts which have so far played in the city brought a range of different sounds, including rock, pop, psychedelia, punk, garage and soul, to name but a few. Some of these launched a full on assault on our eardrums, while others gently caressed them.
The tastes of these three Donostiarras are diverse and this is unashamedly reflected in the various musical events they have organised. In both the Ayo Silver! discography and their concerts one can hear musical creations inspired by 60s guitar sounds, whimsical chamber pop, peculiarities of idiot avant, post punk bands, sounds emerging from digital experimentation and many more.
The Ayo Silver! record label which also works to promote musical acts, favours groups with a minority following who are trying to emerge from the shadows and bring their sounds to new listeners.Don’t miss out on your chance to enjoy one of their concerts and see some of the most uniquely entertaining bands on the international scene.
