A Silent Film - (Set time: 9:50 PM)
A Silent Film
Recorded in a rustic studio on a pecan farm just outside El Paso Texas, the new EP from A Silent Film, "New Year," expands on the cinematic alternative rock of 2012's "Sand & Snow" and 2010's "The City that Sleeps."

Lead single 'Tomorrow' marries the anthemic power of "Joshua Tree"-era U2 with driving synths, setting up a soaring chorus that is destined to become an unforgettable moment in their live set.

'Paralysed' explores the powerlessness and self-destructiveness of infatuation -- I'm paralysed / by the touch of your hand / before you walk away please show me how / to break out of this jail cell -- set to a tense, high-energy soundtrack that combines the formal experimentation of Muse with the emotional lyrical directness of Imagine Dragons.

The EP's bombast is balanced by the soaring, dramatic ballads 'Strong Enough' and 'Message in the Sand,' both of which deal with finding emotional strength and support through a loved one: whenever I fall/you lift me up/show me how to be strong enough.

The Oxford, U.K. band once again returned to the U.S. to record "New Year." The EP was self-produced, in collaboration with Matt Wilcox, and was mixed by "The City that Sleeps" producer Sam Williams (Supergrass).

"New Year" will see worldwide release on April 21st, 2015, followed by touring and the release of a full-length album later this year.
