Silvery 'ACTION FORCE'/'THE NOD' - now available for download!

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. ‘Action Force is my favourite rapid-fire, jerky pop song of the year’ Steve Lamacq (BBC Blog) ‘Tumble-dried Blur melting Sparks into liquid pop’ What’s On The NME Stereo? iTUNES: Napster:

Vote for Silvery tonight on BBC Radio 2

Silvery’s next single ‘ACTION FORCE’ has been described by Steve Lamacq as ‘my favourite rapid-fire, jerky pop song of the year’ and by the NME as ‘Tumble-dried Blur melting Sparks into liquid pop’ and it will be getting a spin on Radio 2 tonight on Chris Evans Drive Time Jukebox Jury between 5pm and 7pm. You can vote for the track by email or text.
