Silver Medal

The Jupiter Suite

Silver Medal is a 5-piece rock band from Portland, Oregon that has taken rhythm-driven pop in one hand, a dog-eared existentialist novel in the other, and shaken the hell out of both until they make a catchy rhythm.

With a shared addiction to compelling hooks, pop harmonies, and depressive episodes (bummer on that last one, guys) the five friends who compose Silver Medal came together in a neon-lit basement during the cold months of 2016 and have been writing irresistible nihilist-pop ever since.

Their freshman album, Easy Doesn’t, was released in 2017. The satisfying nostalgia of crunchy guitars, earnest vocals and irony-free lyrics is balanced out by well-crafted melodies and shiny synth, all glued together by the band’s quintessentially Pacific Northwestern DIY ethos.

Live, Silver Medal alternates between bittersweet pop melodies and emotional, wall-of-sound rock, with an evolving mood that keeps the audience engaged as they easily swing from pensive, reflective melodies to drum-driven, danceable, pop-rock odes to Camus.

Easy Doesn’t can be found one all streaming services, and Silver Medal can be found wherever cheap beer is sold.
