Silver - Lucas Laufen - Shadowlark

Silver have just shared their new video for 'Wait'. It's a bright melodic rocker of a song, and the video captures that adding an extra layer of feel good to the piece.

Lucas Laufen has released 'A Million Miles From Love' which opens with an acoustic indie folk lilt, and is followed by some additional layers of instrumentation giving the track a richer feel.

Shadowlark have a new video for 'Bleed My Heart' which adds to the story line of the song, bringing plenty of drama, to a superb alt pop track.

Silver - Wait.

Silver will release their new EP Let’s Talk Tomorrow About Last Night on October 25. A new video for Wait has been shared ahead of the release.

Silver is Greg Gilmore (vocals, guitar) Jeff Knight (drums), Brendon Lund (bass), Adam Landis (keys) and Josh Kisor (lead guitar.) A Reno-based five-piece who deliver timeless, guitar-driven rock n’ roll. After coming together in the summer of 2016, the group self-recorded and released their debut EP Rock n' Roll Is Dead and began touring and staking their claim in the silver state and beyond.

It took only a few gigs to catch the attention of Joe Johnston, known for his work with CAKE and owner of Sacramento’s Pus Cavern recording studio who jumped on-board to engineer the band’s self-produced new EP.

Crossing multiple rock n’ roll genres Silver recorded Let's Talk Tomorrow About Last Night over five days in early January 2019. Silver stays true to themselves while paying homage to melody-oriented guitar rock and songwriter and singer Gilmore brings it all to life with his storytelling lyrics.


Lucas Laufen - A Million Miles From Love.

“A Million Miles from Love” hit Lucas Laufen during his trip back home a few years back, particularly on a night when the singer-songwriter noticed his legs had been covered in blood.

“I went back down to the house to check what had happened and noticed that a rabbit had been killed on the lawn and left blood all through the grass. It was lying dead about a metre away from its rabbit hole with all of its family surrounding it.”

The deeply personal narrative behind the single was fueled by this graphic and surreal experience, forcing Laufen to recognize how possible it is to be close to home but simultaneously far away.

“I was in a really strange mindset with all the flying and moving between one side of the world and another - physically with my family but mentally floating around in space.”

Laufen worked with Tim Hodgson to direct the music video for his evocative debut. The collaborators tell an all-too-familiar story through minimal and vulnerable spaces, where recognizable material objects transcend their consumerist values.


Shadowlark - Bleed My Heart.

Leeds threepiece Shadowlark have released the powerful and cinematic video for their recent single Bleed My Heart which is out now.

Directed by Ryan Mackfall, produced by Crashburn Media and starring Beatrice Blaj and Craig Russell, the video for Bleed My Heart was inspired by the band and the director’s love of David Fincher films. An expressive and mesmerising body of work, it features a strong narrative throughout with a twist in the plot at the end.

Lead singer Ellen explains; “We really wanted to avoid a performance-based video because they're just so boring... we also really don't like being seen. The idea with this was to have a proper narrative but something that wasn't as generic as a break-up. It reminds us of those great music videos from the 90s we all used to watch growing up.”

Following on from last year’s single Hunger, Bleed My Heart, produced and mixed by long-term collaborator Dan Austin (Massive Attack, Biffy Clyro, Doves), continues the band’s ethereal and poignant sound. Opening delicately with atmospheric synths and rich yet haunting vocals, the song builds to a dramatic chorus, showcasing the significant meaning about the power of talking to one another in an upbeat and mesmerizing way.

Forming in the halls of their local college in their hometown of Leeds, Shadowlark first introduced themselves in 2017 with debut single Do Your Worst. After gaining support from BBC 6 Music and Radio X, they secured a publishing deal with Warner Chappell, and over the last two years, have performed shows at the likes of Glastonbury and Live At Leeds, alongside support shows with George Ezra and Dylan Le Blanc.

Influenced by artists such as Portishead, War on Drugs and Bat For Lashes, Shadowlark are proud of their Northern roots and wear their hearts on their sleeves through their introspective and emotive alt-pop sound, which is a portrayal of real-life experiences and genuine everyday reality. As the band say; “we write real songs about real things that happen, and we play them to real people who care and will connect with them because these things happen to them too.”

Alongside Bleed My Heart, the band also have two standalone tracks featured on Take Us Home: Leeds United, an exclusive Amazon Prime documentary about Leeds United, which has been narrated by Russell Crowe. They include The Way It Falls and a cover of Marching On Together, the team’s official song, which is the first time it has featured a female vocal.

A highly anticipated remix of Bleed My Heart from World renowned producer and DJ Gerd Jansen will follow later this month alongside a UK tour announcement. Shadowlark are Ellen Smith (vocals), Chris Quick (keys) and James Warrender (drums).
