Following their Christmas single You Give A Little Love last December, London eccentrics Silvery release their 5th single on Monday 15th June 2009, previously featured on a live BBC Radio 1 Lamacq session and a standout track from their much talked about debut album Thunderer & Excelsior (which made the ARTROCKER and ORGAN top releases of 2008 lists).

The Nishikado EP features a new mix of the lead song (inspired by Toshihiro Nishikado - the creator of Space Invaders in the 1970's) and 3 brand new tracks: Identity, Murder Holes and The Public Purse.
Think Sparks at their most Glam Rock, mixed up with all sorts of musical tricks Blur and Bowie would be proud of.

Watch the video now exclusively on Artrocker.TV

EP. will be available 3 weeks early as an iTunes exclusive on Monday 25th May 2009 (general availability from 15/6/2009)
