Acclaimed Oxford, UK quartet A SILENT FILM return to Toronto after a sold out show and the release of their sophomore album Sand & Snow in 2012. Recorded in various studios in Arizona, Texas and London, there is a Beat Poetry-esque meter to Sand & Snow. Like a Brit-pop score to Jack Kerouac’s On The Road; the narrative flow coupled with propulsive bass lines and swooning symphonic melodies is a snapshot of the creativity inspired by the band’s move from the UK to the US.
Joining A SILENT FILM on tour will be up and coming Australian band GOLD FIELDS, who also make their return to the Drake Underground after a sold out show with St Lucia in December 2012. They will play songs from their forthcoming LP, Black Sun, which is armed with pop hooks, tribal beats, danceable rhythms, and plenty of emotion.
Rounding out the stellar bill is indie-pop trio, CAROUSEL.
