A Silent Film recently returned stateside kicking off their U.S. tour in Southern California.

Met with rave critic reviews, fans can now listen to the captivating debut single “Lightning Strike” online. “Opening up with a memorable lyrics, sparkly synths and an overall anthemic tenor that showcases the band’s best attributes, fans should be excited for what’s to come on A Silent Film’s upcoming LP” (Pure Volume). Energetic and uptempo, optimistic but thoughtfully written, “Lightning Strike” embodies everything the band has strived for in their songwriting.
The highly anticipated follow up to critically acclaimed LP Sand & Snow, the band aspired to write and record a collection of songs that had their own identity and didn’t drift off to follow current trends. A Silent Film was recorded in the band’s hometown over a five-week period following the Secret Rooms tour. The duo invited friends from across the UK and US who had played with them on tour to help with the recording, including Sam Williams (Supergrass, The Go! Team, The Weeks), who recorded A Silent Film’s debut album The City That Sleeps. With their new album “Robert Stevenson (vocals/piano) and Spencer Walker (drums) have created a desert island opus — if this were the last bit of music on earth, that would be okay” (AXS.com).
Formed in Oxford, UK, A Silent Film’s expansive and poetic pop-rock sound has garnered comparisons to everyone from Coldplay to The Killers to U2. Collectively, they create an unyielding positivity in their lyrics and sound, a spirited and romantic musicality that belies an unashamedly upbeat pop attitude. The band self-produced their last LP Sand & Snow, inspired by an impulsive tryst with Americana, yielding the hit singles “Harbour Lights”, and “Danny, Dakota and the Wishing Well” to build on the success of 2010’s anthemic debut single “You Will Leave A Mark”. Earlier this year, the band followed up Sand & Snow with the release of New Year EP and the sold out Secret Rooms tour – a series of unique and intimate ‘in-the-round’ performances across the US. Over the years, the band has toured with such acts as OneRepublic, Civil Twilight, Smashing Pumpkins and Temper Trap as well as festival performances including Glastonbury and Firefly.
