Review: Dark Words on Dark Wings

Dark Words on Dark Wings

I’ve got to confess, this is my first time listening to the band Quiet Science. Before the release of Dark Words on Dark Wings, this band wasn’t on my radar. While it’s easy to start a review by saying “I’ve been a fan since…”, I think it’s more of a testament to their music that I was drawn in so quickly.

Their unique electronic/rock blend is something that Quiet Science does very well! Dark Words on Dark Wings has this element that makes you want to jump around but still has a peacefulness to it. The Florida based Quiet Science has put together an album that shares hope while showing vulnerability that we can all connect with on some level.

The rock driven track “Speak to the Dark” shows the talent of this trio on through the guitar work while the track “A Dying Breed” has a drum beat that you won’t be able to forget. The majority of the album features the incredible synthesizer work that really ties everything together.

This album contains a great mix of music reflecting on life and crying out to God through passionate lyrics. There are enough standout tracks on Dark Words on Dark Wings that it would be hard to pick just two or three.

For fans of bands like Muse, Radiohead and the synth driven Joy Electric, this album is a fantastic buy! I may not have known about Quiet Science before this week, but this album has made me a believer in the music they are making. Take some time to visit them at and be sure to pick up their new album on iTunes or Amazon today.
