The Golden Silvers are a band from London in the UK which has gotten my attention a few weeks ago when I was listening to BBC Radio 1 web radio. They were advertised as one of the leading bands of Radio 1’s Big Weekend that took place this year in Maidstone, Kent, England. So, their very catchy song “Arrows of Eros” was aired several times in the past weeks and I have to say, I fell in love with it. Just the beginning is absolutely wonderful. It starts off with that synthesiser-like three-note theme, that repeats itself over and over again in different variations. And then the singing part takes off: ‘There was a girl who lived in London To-ho-hooown…’ – amazing. What could be a better start for such a typical Britpop song.

Well, I think you should check them out for yourself, which you can either do through their MySpace profile or through their official website. Oh, and by the way, their single “Arrows of Eros” officially comes out on July 14th, 2008. So, pre-order it now at the Young And Lost Club for just £ 3.40 + postage! And no, I’m not getting paid for this.

Now go and enjoy their music, it’s bloody awesome.
