In the beginning, Silbermond's musical style was energetic alternative rock that often had cynical or cheeky lyrics, often tackling consumerism and the mainstream pop culture . However, over the years, their style changed to slower and more introvert indie pop with more personal and poetic lyrics . All of the band's songs are sung in German .
Silbermond is sometimes compared to Juli and Wir sind Helden, all of them being female fronted German language bands that had their biggest successes in the mid-2000s .
