“The elegantly understated debut from this Brooklyn band does what great, grown-up indie rock at its best has always done: It maps out states of personal, emotional and historical in-betweenness with careful, intelligent grace… Songs […] take their time building from muted beauty to closely held grandeur.”
“Once they emerge from the trancelike perfection of [Somewhere You Found My Name‘s] first two tracks, they and their band rock out… Don’t wait for them to come to your town, just buy the darn record.”
“Little Silver has a familiar, delicious vibe… Listen, for example, to a cut called “Anytown” and hear echoes of the New Pornographers. The brew of ethereal harmonies, majestic arrangements and gentle melodies proves there was more precious metal in those hills… In “You Slept Through Summer,” an evocative sonic journey through the passing of time, the words themselves are so rich they feel like instruments… The album is built on delicate harmony, and Simonian’s voice, in particular, is lovely. In fact, it might be its similarity to that of Neko Case […] that beckons that comparison. It’s good company; Little Silver has shown it belongs there.”
The Stolen Souvenir was an introductory EP from Little Silver. It’s bare and intimate, a small set of gorgeous songs co-written by Erika Simonian and Steve Curtis over the course of their first year playing together. Somewhere You Found My Name is Little Silver’s first full-length work as a band, out in July 2017, with a sound that is considerably opened up with the help of Ray Rizzo (drums) and David Tarica (bass). Little Silver will be touring in 2017 and 2018 in support of the new record, with new dates announced soon.
Erika is a veteran of several NYC bands (The Erics, The Sprinkle Genies), and Steve is a founding member of and writer for Hem, a band which had a founding influence on the modern folk-Americana genre, and has performed all over the world.
