Doctor Girlfriend: Silent Screen

There is a special kind of magic in Silent Screen, with elements of indie, lounge, punk, jazz and more, held together in one cohesive package. The band channels the sort of indie charm that’s reminiscent of bands like Viet Cong or Joy Division, filtered through intensity of Television and tempered by the steady hand of Radiohead. This is an especially tuneful record and one with a unique set of production values. No single instrument is privileged over another, save for vocals, and what is represented tonally is prone to shift from song to song. You never know what to expect.
