A Silent Film

UK band A Silent Film are taking time out from working on their new album to return to the US in November for a whistle­stop tour. Singer Robert Stevenson sums up the different influences on a band who have been in a self­imposed exile in the States since 2010. “The City That Sleeps was an album defined by where we grew up; Sand & Snow was inspired by our new experiences in America. The third record is coming from a different place, there seems to be more of a balance now”. A balance achieved by the perspective that over 150 shows in the US in 2012/13, two more successful alternative radio singles in
Danny, Dakota & the Wishing Well and Harbour Lights, and an acclaimed national TV debut on Last Call with Carson Daly might give you. The raw energy of their live show is perhaps unexpected. A Silent Film have always been a band whose attention to detail in the music is highlighted particularly on their 2012 sophomore album Sand & Snow which they self­ produced, mixing duties falling to the established alt­rock team of Alan Moulder and Catherine Marks (The Killers, Foals). Once ‘released’ from the studio however, the band has made a name for itself in delivering an impassioned show of the highest order. Stevenson’s mantra is “to make a connection with every single person in the room”, and this he achieves while delivering a virtuoso performance that cannot be missed. The line­up is completed by bass player Ali Hussain and drummer Spencer Walker, who suggests that the November tour should not be missed. “Its going to be the first time that we play a lot of new songs, which is exciting for us and hopefully for our fans too. We will be pushing the envelope on the live show as well. This band is all about everyone there having fun, having a good time. We like to change things up ­expect bigger and better!”
Since the release of their debut single ­ KROQ and Sirius XM AltNation favourite You Will Leave a Mark ­ and their maiden voyage to the US in 2010, A Silent Film have been growing a large and dedicated fan­base across the States. Be sure to see them in November to find out why.
