Silicon Ballet


Belgians Silicon Ballet make instantly likeable chamber (or this that chambre) pop that twinkles its way right into your heart.

Of their Gareth Parton-mixed EP (Go! Team, Breeders), personal hilight ‘Goodbye Low’ dances between ethereal and driving, much in the way Mew do, complete with smatterings of 7/8 that embellish this very effect.

Amongst the euro-twang of layered vocals sit an array of clean-n-clear arrangements, which although steeped in pop sensibilities, are not afraid of following a mad tangent or two – making for a much more interesting listen than many of their contemporaries.

Stream ‘Slowly Slowly’ in its entirety below, or make it your own here.
