A Silent Film
A Silent Film have established themselves as one of the most exciting live acts in the UK today. Following on from gigs with artists as diverse as Mystery Jets, Metronomy, Athlete and Glasvegas they are about to embark on their first headline tour of the UK in support of their debut album 'The City that Sleeps'. Their sound combines the elegance of well-structured songwriting and an attention to textural detail with a love of contemporary genres ranging from dance and electronica to rock and pop.
'this is a confident debut album full of epic structures and ethereal vocals from surefire stars of the future' - The Fly
"Gently weaving intricately constructed tales, this DIY piano-led quartet from Oxford produce larger than life cinematic soundscapes, rolling from trance-like distortion to superbly focused piano and electric guitar hooks." - Rock Sound
"Modern Indie psychedelia, cloud-reaching melodies and the subtle racing energy that glides straight into your subconscious effortlessly..." - Subba-cultcha.com
It would be reasonable to suspect a band who borrowed their name from the works of Friedrich Nietzsche might just be yet another pretentious act arriving on the scene but, when it comes to the rock and rhythm duo IAMDYNAMITE, it would be safer to assume the exact opposite. In truth, the choosing of the name might just be a perfect example of the band's playful and self effacing sense of humor. At first listen it becomes clear, IAMDYNAMITE, with their thunderous beats and crunching power chords, are actually the anti-pretentious and with American cynicism at an all time high, the timing of their arrival could not be more perfect.
IAMDYNAMITE are Christopher Martin (Guitar, Vox) and Chris Phillips (Drums/Vox). The high energy duo had been cutting their teeth in the Detroit indie rock scene with their own unique sound that some have described as "2 guys that sound like 5." In the Fall of 2011 the band set out on their first coast to coast tour.
