FEATURED TRACK » “No Application”
Silverclub began as a project based around the studio experiments of Duncan Edward Jones, who previously performed as underground techno artist DNCN before moving on to pursue a wider range of genres. The band formed when Jones put together some demos on equipment borrowed from British singer/songwriter Jim Noir, who instructed him to “go and record some songs,” but not exactly in those light words. The result was a handful of danceable electro-pop tracks fit with upbeat melodies and sharp instrumentals.
Based in Manchester, Silverclub benefits from the skills of Chris McGrath (bass), Henrietta Smith-Rolla (sythn/vox), Jim Noir (drums, co-production) and all round electronics and turntable wizard G-Kut (electronics/serato/percussion). In terms of musical inspiration, Jones includes Beck, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, and Matthew Dear, but explains, “I often don’t realize I have taken an influence into my music until someone else points it out.”
The December 2010 release of Silverclub’s acclaimed Answers EP cemented their position as one of the UK’s most exciting new acts. They progressed from their first gig to centre-stage on last year’s official In The City: Unsigned list in just over three months, taking in prestige gigs such as the Glastonbury Festival and Diesel xXx along the way. Silverclub’s anticipated second EP No Application will be released on November 22nd through Hidden Pony Records, with a full-length album set for early 2012.
