Sylver Tongue was born from the Kandinsky-addled mind of a Purple Rain obsessed girl. Inspired by 70s sci-fi movies, psychedelic pop and the prowling grooves of Grace Jones and her warm leatherette, Sylver's songs were hammered out on an old battered Juno and a shiny metal computer from the comfort of her underground cave.
Sylver Tongue - the new project from Charlotte Hatherley was unveiled earlier this year in the form of the free download, Hook You Up. Seductive synths collide with Charlotte's compelling vocals to create a delicious and irresistible slice of pop. Her debut single Creatures was released on May 21st.
Both songs demonstrate a new direction for Hatherley. Whereas previously she has written songs on a guitar, she now composes on keys.
Currently working with the award winning remixer and producer James Rutledge, Sylver Tongue is committed to making timeless songs, with a majesty and versatility that's hard to find but impossible to resist.
