“The Husband and Wife duo that make up the Nashville-based band City Silos, has a new album…don’t let the album’s title fool you. Happy Thoughts has an edge and almost lyrical darkness to it. That is if you can pull yourself away from Kristen’s intoxicating vocals long enough to focus on the words she is laying down. Once you get past those, you encounter some serious fuzz. The guitars drive these songs with almost a glossy metallic sound that is one part raw and another part polished.”

“I love songs that sound like they could be on movie soundtracks…City Silos…isn’t a band where you can accuse them of phoning it in, or selling out for placement. Because this isn’t one of those tracks [‘Just Like Her’]. It feels accessible, genuine, and fun. An anthem with attitude.”

“CITY SILOS rock out with arena-ready synth pop on ‘Give It To Me Straight.’ Featuring a crushing vocal performance from Kristen, the song is awash in synth, jagged crashing guitars crashing into one another, and the drum kit setting the whole show on fire. This is undoubtedly pop music, but the duo manages to rock out and create a song that, while infectious and catchy, isn’t too polished. With soaring harmonies and big groovy synth, the CITY SILOS seem intent on crafting arena-ready music.”

“This up-tempo track [‘Let You Go’] has a ton of energy to it. The dynamic songwriting feels like it was meant for a big-time arena. The vocal is somewhere between Reba McEntire and Grace Potter. The powerful sound feels like a rock pop track that could race up the charts.”

-- Greg Jones, Ear To The Ground, August 26, 2019

“Nashville-based alternative rock duo CITY SILOS have harnessed an effortlessly cool vibe in their latest single ‘Give It To Me Straight.’ Also known as Chris and Kristen Butler, they work together as husband and wife to create a track that is as catchy as it is full of vulnerability and angst. Kristen’s voice is reminiscent of Paramore’s Hayley Williams with her powerful range and ability to bring a certain raw emotion to the song.”

“The alt-rock duo consists of Kristen and Chris Butler and this husband/wife combo is certainly not messing around with their catchy, pop-infused sound…CITY SILOS’ captivating debut…is its own beautiful concoction that is instantly familiar but also the band’s own. We think you’re going to dig the tunes…”

“‘Give It to Me Straight,’ the first taste of their upcoming new album, sees singer Kristen Butler wield her vocal cords as a set of steel carving knives. Her tone melts the creamy butter that is guitar wailing against the drums’ own howls and lashes. Musician and partner Chris Butler pricks the instruments to creep and crawl, tangling together into a scaly might-morphing creature that won’t be tamed.”
