After weeks of plays on BBC Radio (Lamacq, Riley, Lamarr, Crowley, Radcliffe & Maconie amongst others) and both BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music live sessions, Silvery release their third single 'Action Force', taken from their acclaimed debut album 'Thunderer & Excelsior'.
The double A-side is 'The Nod', a new non-album exclusive recording of a live favourite. Its the perfect showcase for their unique and riotous Victoriana inspired sound and a worldview that suggests a heady concoction of British Sea Power through a filter of Sparks, Bowie, XTC and Blur at their punky fairground best.

"Action Force is my favourite rapid-fire, jerky pop song of the year"
Steve Lamacq (BBC Blog)
"More of their Victorian gentleman's club brit pop, Action Force is a catchy slice off the London band's well received recent album. The Nod is a previously unreleased goodness and one of their best tracks - if ever there was a model of a modern major general and all the Sparks that fly and the bits of early Blur and XTC and Jules Verne adventurer"
"Tumble-dried Blur melting Sparks into liquid pop"
