After weeks of plays on BBC Radio (Lamacq, Riley, Lamarr, Crowley, Radcliffe & Maconie) and both BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music live sessions, Silvery release their third single 'Action Force', taken from their 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.
