Single released 16/05/2010
The mysterious twosome known as Silver Columns have already built up a cult fanbase with their first two limited edition, white label singles, "Browbeaten" and "Yes, and Dance", but with "Cavalier", their first "proper" release on the perennially tastemaking label Moshi Moshi, they are finally ready to go overground and take their rightful place in the pantheon of offbeat electro pop greats.
A frantic opening battalion of synths acts as "Cavalier"'s clarion call to the dancefloor, with the rest of the track piling on in a dizzying rush of pinballing beats, urgent keyboard lines and deceptively sweet vocals plaintively asking, "can you hear me now?" (as if there was ever any doubt in the first place). Taken from their imminent debut, the leftfield meisterwerk-in-waiting "Yes, and Dance" (to be released in May), "Cavalier" brings Silver Columns further into the light, blinking, undimmed and as defiantly odd as ever.
