The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Noise and Silence

It makes perfect sense that childhood friends Bob Hunter & Matt Fleming would start a band together, after all they were banging on a piano together, before Hunter could even walk. That’s a lifetime of experiences and ideas that has brought us their sonic experiment, known as Noise and Sound, a name inspired by Richard Linklater’s Waking Life. The duo released its debut EP Cycle Theory, earlier this summer via Exotic Fever, and is already set to drop a new single in the not-too-distant future so keep a lookout for that. Noise and Silence recently won The Deli Philly’s Featured Artist(s) Poll, and we’d like to help you to get to know them a little better, which you can do so HERE





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Noise and Silence

Noise and Silence recently won The Deli Philly’s Featured Artist(s) Poll, and we’d like to help you to get to know them a little better, which you can do so below. 

The Deli: How did you start making music?

Bob Hunter: I was banging on a piano before I could walk with Matt. I couldn't put my guitar down in my late teens. It got serious when we started modding our instruments and equipment ourselves.

Matt Fleming: I was singing at a very young age – just to myself, around my brother and sister from time to time. That's when I started to realize my aptitude and love for music. Another wave hit me at 12 when I took up trumpet and a love for beating things, musically that is. Been making noise ever since.

TD: Where did the name Noise and Silence come from?  

BH: It came from a scene in Richard Linklater's Waking Life. A narrator perfectly describes the existence of art, what it's always been and will ever be.

MF: What he said. We've been through a lot together, and we've felt that narrator's description fit at every turn.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences? 

BH: Alan Watts, Philip K. Dick, Joseph Campbell, wind chimes and birds chirping with a little circuit bending.

MF: Dave Grohl, Edgar Winters and the Desert.

TD: What artists (local, national and/or international) are you currently listening to? 

MF: Broken Social Scene's new album is really good. I also ran into Shana Falana at the Gaze Fest in Wilkes-Barre. Does the duo thing properly; Gnarwhal too. I'm currently wearing one of Gnarwhal's shirts.

BH: Broken Social Scene, Pile, Dulls, Fine Motor, Along The Way, John Kelsey (Hueman Garbij).

TD: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

BH: Little three-year-old me walked into a record store with my Dad, and I picked out Nirvana - In Utero. I still listen to that album!

MF: My first real memorable concert had to be Saosin when they were on tour with Senses Fail – a lot of really memorable concerts that year as well. My first album was Astro Lounge by Smash Mouth. That album was great when it came out.  Definitely brings back fond memories.

TD: What do you love about Philly? 

MF: The people.

BH: It's like a giant playground for young, creative people. Have you tried the food here!?

TD: What do you hate about Philly? 

BH: Trash! Just stop making garbage.

MF: The people.

TD: What are your plans for 2017? 

MF: We'll keep doing what we're doing.

BH: Well, it looks like we're going to put out a single really soon. I would like to do some touring with our friends, and I think you can expect to see a new face holding down the low end.

TD: What was your most memorable live show? 

BH: This show we played at KFN a while ago. We shared the stage with our friend Spenser Colmbs, and had our first experience with all the green room antics. After that show, we went to the bar, and ran into Alex G. We talked music the whole night; he's a really great guy!

MF: Our show at Bond Villain, the most amazing DIY venue I've been to in Philadelphia. There's great coffee there. A perfect mix of DIY and commercial venue. Not to mention, we had just come from recording, and got to share our music pre-release.

TD: What's your favorite thing to get at the deli? 

MF: Dad of Diablo at the Foodery in NoLibs.

BH: Sliced turkey and fancy cheese with avocado.

Those Creatures bring dreamy drone rock to Bowery Electric tonight (08.08)

With only two released tracks under their belt, the Brooklyn-via-Atlanta shoegaze trio Those Creatures has already played more live shows than you can count. Their double single release Joseph’s War 7” features two dreamy tracks (“Jessie Baby” and “Joseph War’s Dream”) that melt beautifully together to create an emotive listening experience complete with fuzzy guitars, droning vocals, and fleshed-out harmonies. Catch them playing yet another live show at The Bowery Electric tonight (August 8th) at 8 pm. - Lilly Milman
