While discovering the music of the early 90's through the TV show "120 Minutes" on MTV, Julien Bouchard fell in love with bands like Dinosaur Jr, The Lemonheads and Sonic Youth. After several false starts, Julien decided to compose alone in 2004. Following two demos, recorded with the invaluable assistance of Régis Metzger, (THE) SILENT DAYS started to take shape. Joined by Vincent Hermon on drums and with Régis handling bass, they recorded nearly 20 songs at Studio Microclimat in 2006. Attracting attention from the Belgian label Anorak Supersport in 2007, they signed a contract and recorded their first album with John Roo (Hollywood Porn Stars, Sharko and Experimental Tropic Blues Band).

On the 11 tracks of their debut album "I am nothing", (THE) SILENT DAYS began to mix their many influences to produce songs combining sweet pop in the style of Ben Kweller (Without A Sound) with a more rough-and-ready lo-fi rock reminiscent of Sebadoh among others (In The Park). From a fruitful collaboration with Ken Stringfellow (The Posies) came "Any Summer Days", a true jewel of college rock with melancholy lyrics, which is proving to be one of the album’s finest moments. The band also brought in American singer Kate Sikora who, from her adopted home Japan, agreed to lend her melodious voice to the excellent "Never My Eyes".
