It is certain that large part of the hype following Silver Columns has to do with the mystery surrounding them. Until recently no one was aware of their true identity resulting in growing speculations regarding the supposed famous producers behind them; candidates varied from Andy Butler from Hercules & Love Affair, till Joe Goddard from Hot Chip and even Jimmy Somerville. However all this side talk had a positive effect on Adem and Johny Lynch (also known as Pictish Trail) who in reality are the people behind the Silver Columns. It is a fact that their beautiful blend of pop, electro, disco and indie elements also gave a helping hand to their success. Silver Columns have recently released ‘Cavalier’ their new 12’’ under the exceptional Moshi Moshi records and are here to prove that their identify revelation, is yet another strategic step on their way to global pop domination.
