A Silent Film

The City That Sleeps

A Silent Film

Xtra Mile Recordings

The City That Sleeps has a great sound.  It’s catchy and instantly appealing, the reliance on surreal keyboard driven melodies echoes certain mainstream acts, namely Coldplay.  With A Silent Film, they took that piano-driven sound updated it, removing those painfully cheesy elements and adding an element of depth reminiscent of the most introspective singers and songwriters.  It’s excellent, full of pop-sensibility created by diverse, piano driven soundscapes.  While nothing stands out vocally or lyrically, the harmonizing vocals certainly add an element; they are perfectly matched and tuned to the layout and design of each track.  It’s epic but not quite cheesy, certainly worth a listen if you keep wishing Coldplay never sold out (but if you always thought Coldplay was cheesy… stay away!).
