Limited Edition of 275 copies on regular black Vinyl
“The Cross of Stamford Hill” is the debut Mini-Album by London-based coldwave band Silent Star. It includes their debut single, Star Of The Sea, which amassed 40,000 views on YouTube when released last year and led to the band being picked up by Young & Cold Records. The EP's melodic but beat-drive, early-eighties synth sound evokes "the properties of modernist architecture", with searing high-pitched bass guitar and melodramatic vocals redolent of The Associates' Billy MacKenzie.
Having headlined a sold-out show at Slimelight, the band will be supporting Xeno & Oaklander at their London show in October and are due to fly off for a tour of Germany and Austria in November.

CROSS OF STAMFORD HILL REVIEWS:
"A perfect combination of bass guitar, drums and synthesisers, and a perfect male vocal . . The duo transpose the properties of modernist architecture into music. Its basis is a strong rhythm,a modernist derivative of symmetry" - Wave Press

"Maybe most impressively, for a genre which often rests on a certain disaffection, there’s an arch sense of play and real personality here" - "Soothing, soaring synth swathes glow and expand into airy depth defying textures cut in rambunctious rolls and steady dance beats marching hypnotically through sparkling electronic swirls" - whitelight-whiteheat.com

Released 2022 by Young & Cold Records.
