Shot in black and white, the cinematic visuals deal with to capture the intensity and rebelliousness on the single’s themes of escapism and strength that may possibly be depicted in a traditional Western film. All through the video clip, the band are viewed dressed as doubtful characters that might be envisioned in the cruel backwaters of Silvertown.
Speaking of the movie, the band comment “Silvertown is both the title of wherever the band began, from Kitty’s flat there, as effectively as the title for the fictional position where the tales we explain to on the album just take put. The tracks are a assortment of stories from our reality but dramatised through an exaggerated lens individuals we satisfied grew to become gods or devils, gunslinging heroes and villains in the songs. The people we portray in the movie are exaggerations of our true selves. Welcome to Silvertown, generate like hell”.
Self-developed, and engineered by Luke Oldfield (The Wytches, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats), Saint Agnes’ debut album captures accurate rebel heart and power. Musically unshackled and ferocious in its intensity, Welcome To Silvertown fuses menacing, frenzied rock with dim anthemic flare. Born in a dingy sub-zero flat, the album is rife with themes of wild fantasy, escapism, psychological fragility and the within-outs of dwelling in East London’s district of Silvertown. Now in 2019, the gates of Saint Agnes’s quasi-fictional sin city are flung open.
