Silvery release the follow up to their 2008 debut Thunderer & Excelsior with their 2nd album Railway Architecture - out today and available from Rough Trade, Fopp, Norman, Piccadilly, Townsend, Juno, Amazon,, iTunes, eMusic, Napster, Amazon Digital and more

Railway Architecture sees Silvery to continue their creative brainstorming, and Railway Architecture which sees bands singer/songwriter James Orman continuing his journey into the very English and eccentric world of the mad, bizarre and absurd. With a doff of a stove-pipe hat to Blur, Bowie, XTC and Sparks, their sound is an eclectic but commercial proposition. The album expertly blends post-punk, Britpop (for want of a better word), music hall and 60′s pop into this year's most exciting release yet, and recently described as:

"Exhilarating art-pop from band bordering on greatness" 4 STARS - UNCUT

"Hunt down this album" 4 STARS - Artrocker

"Delicious and daringly at odds with almost everything else out there" 4 STARS - Clash

"Genius twisted pop" 4 STARS - Big Cheese
