Quiet Village

NORTH AMERICAN DEBUT After three sought-after singles on the Whatever We Want label plus remixes for the likes of Gorillaz, François K and Cosmo Vitelli, Quiet Village step out of the shadows to present their first full-length album, ’Silent Movie’. Comprised of master crate-digger Joel Martin and rising house-music star Matt Edwards (aka Radio Slave), and borrowing their name from Martin Denny’s exotica masterpiece, Quiet Village make the old sound new (and vice versa). Influenced by Italian film soundtracks, BBC library music, disco edits, acid rock, vintage soul and easy listening, they meld the unlikeliest elements-bluesy guitar, chamber strings, air-raid sirens, shuffling breakbeats, even flutes and seagull cries-into the most gorgeous music you will hear all year!
