A Silent Film
Debut record The City That Sleeps’ released in the US earlier this year, continues to make exciting waves across the country
with lead single ‘You Will Leave A Mark’ topping national radio most requested playlists, picking up first place at the Sirius Alt
Nation awards for ‘Best In Studio Performance’ & No. 4 ‘Song of the Year’ only behind Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys &
Vampire Weekend. The song was downloaded a massive 110,000 times as part of the iTunes Discovery Download and
Linkin Park even featured the band on their iTunes Celebrity Playlist. Appearances at SXSW, a triumphant headline performance with Biffy Clyro for Philadelphia’s Radio 104.5 Summer Block Party series and tours & shows with The Smashing
Pumpkins, Fitz & The Tantrums, The Temper Trap, Sleigh Bells & Civil Twilight as well as performing at the UK’s Glasonbury festival, by invitation of the BBC and appearances at Portugal’s huge Mares Vivas & Optimus Alive festivals where the
bands’ debut single and album releases entered the charts there at numbers 1 and 3 respectively. Multiple syncs on MTV’s
“The Hills”, “The Hard Times of R J Berger”, “Investigation Discovery” and an appearance on the ‘Rockband’ video game are
all firing the buzz surrounding the band and their latest single ‘Driven By Their Beating Hearts’, which continues to make giant
leaps forward with radio stations all over the States A-listing the song once again. The band continue to tour The City That
Sleeps throughout the summer whilst also starting to write for their second record, due out later in 2011

Hotels
Travel. Romance. Solitude. Rest…
Welcome to where hearts go broke. Walk the halls late at night; behind each door is a story. From one room, the flickering of a Bond movie marathon with the sound turned off- replaced by alternating scores from Angelo Badalamenti and Elliot Goldenthal. In another, newlyweds drift off to Cocteau Twins and Stereolab. From yet another, the sound of Air floats out on a mist of perfume, while an unexpected heat blast of M83 rushes out after it. The doors close and echoes of post-punk basslines, Swedish pop melodies, and cavernous surf guitar reverberate through the hallways. These are the sounds of Hotels. End credits for films never made. Songs for dancers with tears and smoke in their eyes. The soundtrack to star-crossed love. Enjoy your stay.
