The title of Silent Rival's debut album, The Kindness of Strangers, can be interpreted quite literally.

Several years ago, vocalist Sara Coda responded to a compliment about her coat by immediately taking it off and giving it to the admirer. Then she turned the experience into music—a torch-song-cinematic-show-stopper "Take It From Me," which deals with the idea of leaving the past behind.

Examining that past, and using it as a starting point for new beginnings, is a common theme throughout The Kindness of Strangers. However, the Los Angeles based band—Coda, guitarist Joz Ramirez, bass player Yutaka Sao, and drummer Brock Bowers—thrives on rising from the ashes. "I've got to die a little, to live at all!,” Coda exclaims on the first single, “Die A Little”.

“If there were one thing I would want somebody to take from this record, it’s that we put everything that we had into making it. That’s the only way that we know how to connect with people. Honestly and, when necessary, brutally. As beautiful and magical as life can be, it’s not easy. And so, if you are like us and want more from life than to simply experience your own happiness and comfort, welcome to our world.”
