Follow-up to debut single and Fake DIY Record of the Week ‘Gold Tag’, ‘Prufrock’s Dream’ is a modern day sequel to TS Eliot’s poem ‘The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock’ in which a descendant of Prufrock grapples with his political ineffectuality as a member of the voiceless global herd.

“A very promising band trying and succeeding at something really quite hard to execute”
Alex Baker – Kerrang! Radio

“I love Gold Tag”      Jack Parker – Amazing Radio

“Thumping electronica with mind bending rock-out pieces and falsetto vocals. Not to be missed!”
RipitUp!

With influences such as John Grant, Massive Attack and Bon Iver, Silhouettes’ debut album twists and turns from haunting pin-drop falsetto sparseness to crunching post-punk guitars and pumping Moroder-esque electro with a beat and swagger to match their fashionable B-Town neighbours.

Songwriter/vocalist Nathan came across the title ‘Ever Moving Happiness Machines’ in an Adam Curtis documentary, The Century of the Self, which described how Freudian philosophy was used by the U.S. Government to convert society into consumers:

“I think the title ties the album together well. The songs are mostly about the awakening of the self within a society obsessed with the vacuous ends of consumerism. The epiphany leads to a transformation of the self through a pursuit of deeper, more natural truths about happiness.”

Silhouettes’ Ever Moving Happiness Machines Tour calls at the following:

14th April – Kasbah, Coventry
16th April – The King Billy, Northampton
18th April – The Roadhouse, Manchester
19th April – The Windmill, Brixton
26th April – Love Music, Hate Racism Festival, Town Hall, Dudley
27th April – 6/8 Kafé, Birmingham
1st May    - The Dublin Castle, Camden
2nd May – Glass, Stourbridge

Valentiine – new UK single

Melbourne scrunge-rockers Valentiine release new UK single Animal on 6th January 2014.

Lyrically brutal, Animal was written about disloyalty and an extreme fear that treacherous former friends might even eat you if they had the chance. The filming of the hard-hitting, meat-laden video was particularly challenging for bassist Erica and a number of the film extras who are vegetarian.

Animal is the third single taken from Valentiine’s eponymous debut album, released by Integrity in the UK in July 2013 to a raft of positive reviews and covermount CD contributions on Vive Le Rock, AFV and Classic Rock’s “world’s best new bands” compilation.

“The best Australian band you’ve never heard of” The Guardian

“one of the best grunge records since the death of Kurt Cobain … 4*” Time Out London

“…glorious scuzz [and] dirty pop hooks… 9/10” Powerplay Magazine

“an album that may inspire a generation of teenage girls to pick up a guitar” Penny Black Music

You can buy Valentiine’s debut album now on CD from our Mailorder page or download it from iTunes at Valentiine on iTunes and from Amazon at Valentiine at Amazon.

Both of Valentiine’s previous singles, Love Like and Chucky, were played on Radio 1, Q Radio, Total Rock and Team Rock Radio and reached number 1 and number 2 in the Amazing Radio singles chart.

After June’s successful 10-date headline UK tour, the girls return to these shores for further dates and summer festivals in 2014, where they’ll debut tracks from their forthcoming second album.

Valentiine are Vanessa (guitar/vocals), Erica (bass/vocals) and Shelly (drums/vocals).

Produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors / Scott Matthews / JAWS), Dust and Stone is taken from the forthcoming album which gives birth to a fresh sonic trajectory for the band and looks to build on their breakthrough with debut album Teenager of the Century. The brand new track features the band’s hallmark blend of lush harmonies and musicianship.

Festival offers rolled in for the band including Hop & Barley, Cornucopia Festival, Roots North and Dartington Festival, as well as headline appearances at Lechlade Festival and Cockermouth Rock Festival.
