SKETCH’s SILENT :: WeCite Review

The first thing you notice about the video is that it is edited/directed by the band itself which promptly reminded me of that phrase about too many cooks spoiling the broth. There is always a risk when you are taking the initiative to conceive and direct/edit the video for your own song. You are either going to mess it up with every one in the band pushing for their two cents and for their on-camera slot or you simply fail to realize that if you can sing or play an instrument well, the same skill might not be applicable when you are holding a camera.Fortunately for SKETCH, they are neither a 7/8-men-army like Entity Paradigm (so they could bunch their entire talent pool in one frame and be a one big happy family) nor have they failed (completely) to deliver with the camera in hand. Their efforts might not earn them too many accolades too soon but SKETCH’s Silent is a fire-starter none the less in the arid and seemingly lifeless desert of Islamabad’s music scenario.

The song is addictive! If you listen to it with your eyes closed while sitting on the aisle of your window with a cup of good coffee while the raindrops trickle down, you will feel immersed in it. But then again, you don’t need effort to appreciate good music do you? SKETCH is bringing along the promise of something new and different and there is no question about it.

The video is good and it does portray the philosophy behind the song but it gets too gloomy and too dark for everyone’s liking I think. Possibly if it could be refined in terms of its presentation a bit more, it would do better. The vocalist needs to ‘move along with’ the song! At times, it felt like he was hardly opening his mouth at all. He has a great voice which, I believe, has the promise of becoming even finer much like an aged wine and is supported well by the rest of the gang but he needs to put a bit more life in to his performance for the future.

All in all, I think SKETCH has done a wonderful job at their first go. Nothing in this world is perfect and there is nothing that can not be improved further. SKETCH is a brilliant and talented team and are definitely some one to look forward to as the next big thing in years to come.
