Take one repetitive line of danceable robotic conveyor belt synth, some electromotive whirling sounds and some call and response vocals and voila you have the new single from electro-pop boys Silver Columns. It's called Cavalier. With a rhythm that, rather like Kraftwerk’s Autobahn, conjures up images of long journeys it’s no surprise that the video for Cavalier features significant footage of roads, although the word autobahn sounds so much sexier than roads don’t you think?
The duo’s debut album Yes, And Dance is due for release soon and as we rage down into festival season Silver Columns are cropping up for you to cop off to a significant number of times. Catch their squiggly quirky double shuffle at Great Escape in Brighton, Dot to Dot, Lounge On The Farm, Isle of Wight, Lovebox, Green Man and Breaking More Waves favourite end of summer hoe down - Bestival. Line up clashes permitting we’ll see you down the front for at least one of those. Are you dancing? We’re asking.
