Railway Architecture, the essential 2nd album from London artrockers Silvery. Their 2008 debut Thunderer & Excelsior was an Artrocker Album of The Year (No.19), and their unique blend of English eccentricity won them fans across the board from Steve Lamacq, Gary Crowley, Marc Riley, Mark Lamarr and David Quantick. The album received strong radio support including sessions for BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music as well as a various other radio accolades (see radio below). The band were invited to play at Rough Trade East’s 1st Birthday, Amsterdam’s annual London Calling festival and as guests of British Sea Power at their “Sing Ye From The Hillsides” Tan Hill Festival and also on their late 2009 tour.

The success of Thunderer And Excelsior fuelled 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. Railway Architecture 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, having already caught the attention of BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq with a nomination for his Rebel Playlist for first album single ‘the Naked & The Dead’
