"Silvery's aural assault on my neurological pathway nearly gave me a brain haemorrhage. After what seems like a lifetime of listening to bread-and-butter indie bands, my brain had turned to a fine mush and was not prepared for the vivid tapestry of psychedelic pop that bounds from this debut album. Silvery's eccentric organ-led pop is quintessentially British with more than a nod to David Bowie, a wink to Syd Barrett and a wave to XTC. The sheer intensity of the music throughout the album can leave you feeling mentally drained and a little bit insane come the curtain call, but it is worth the trip."
