Silvertwin – Saviour

Do you remember me writing about Wait For Me by Super db, last month? I think it sounds like a Westcoast take on Olivia Newton-John & ELO’s Xanadu. Well, they’re not the only band to be inspired by Jeff Lynne’s musical legacy…

Let me introduce you to Silvertwin. A London quintet around Isaac Shalam, with like-minded souls Alicia Barisani, Dan Edery, Lauric Mackintosh and Antonio Naccache. They too are raised on a diet of ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s music. And now, Shalam has found himself the vehicle to recreate this beloved sound. There’s no copy-pasting however, he writes all of the songs himself, carefully following his heroes’ examples.

Silvertwin’s new single Saviour is equal parts Electric Light Orchestra, Paul McCartney, Supertramp and Steely Dan (including the famous Reelin’ In The Years riff). The track has come out ahead of the band’s upcoming self-titled debut album, set for release on 16 July.
