In 2010 a little Oxford quartet had just released its debut of epic and ambiently anthemic indie rock, The City That Sleeps, with an incongruously niche heavy rock profile. Despite the curious association, A Silent Film had an impressive American welcome. They built a highly respectable alternative radio campaign and an impressive tour itinerary, highlighted by jaunts with One Republic and Civil Twilight, The Temper Trap, Smashing Pumpkins, Athlete and Sleigh Bells, but the band found itself when it found America. Their Sophomoric release, Sand & Snow, which was written and recorded in the harshness of Arizona documents the wisdom and romance gleaned from the self-discovery of band with proven songwriting chops and buzzing career potential.
Anchor & Braille
The Sideproject of Anberlin's lead singer Stephen Christian, Anchor & Braille was formed as an outlet for the songwriters material that would never be used by his other band. The resulting colaboration with Copeland's Aaron Marsh reveals a much more personal, more subdued side of Christian. The band is touring in support of their upcoming album The Quite Live (out July 31st).
