The Silence Kit is a Philadelphia-based post-punk band that plays textured, dark, indie rock. Inspired in equal parts by post punk, shoegaze, neo-psychedelia, avant-garde and indie rock, the band was started by singer/guitarist Patrick McCay, who was joined by Benjamin Endling on guitar/synth in 2013, Darren O'Toole on drums and Justin Dushkewich on bass in 2014. The band is following up their 2014 release "Watershed" with a new batch of songs released as a series of singles. See the press release for release information.
"You Think I'm Crazy Now?" appears on the "Watershed" LP.
The video features public domain video footage from the archives of the U.S. Civil Defense office. The film was intended to inform farmers what to do in case of nuclear attack.
Editing and Post-Production: Larry McCay IV.
