British garage rockers Saint Agnes recently released their debut album, Welcome To Silvertown. The album has been released on Notting Hill Music Masters. Self-produced and engineered by Luke Oldfield (The Wytches, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats), the noir recording captures the true rebel heart and energy of the band. Welcome To Silvertown is full with themes of wild fantasy, escapism, emotional fragility and the inside-outs of living in East London’s district of Silvertown, all book-ended with the band’s incredible penchant for lyrical songwriting.
While the thuds of the opener title track (which has received 1.5 million streams on Spotify) deliver the riff-laden assault that Saint Agnes fans have come to love, tracks like “Why Do You Refuse To Die” step into new territories, inspired by the high intensity and excitement of classic Western films. The pulsing “I Got a Drum” arrives gospel-indebted, while “Diablo Take Me Home” touches on the band’s love of the blues and Jack White-esque Detroit riffery.
The band have also released their latest video for “Move Like A Ghost” which you can watch below.
Saint Agnes are Kitty Austen (vocals/guitar/keys) Jon Tufnell (guitar/vocals), Ben Chernett (bass), and Andy Head (drums) The band’s magnetic chemistry and catchy songwriting are making their mark with many comparing their incredible showmanship and tough-as-nails attitude with The Kills, Jack White, Starcrawler and Rival Sons. Saint Agnes has already logged 200 shows in their native UK and continue to win over audiences with appearances at several of Europe’s biggest festivals this spring and summer.
