London quartest Sun Silva have released their debut single and video for “Blue Light”. The warped video premiered with Clash and features kaleidoscopic seafront visuals alongside headshots of the band as they take aim at the social media use of today.

Regarding the single frontman Oscar Gormley says, “Blue Light” is about how social media dominates so many young people’s lives. The song is about how this freaks me out and it reminisces on simpler times.” Continuing about the video he says, “The desolate spaces and stark contrast of sea and land used in the filming of the video reflect on the ghostly feeling of being trapped by a digital ocean of constant social media.”

Having only burst onto the scene with “Blue Light” last month, SUN SILVA have been quick to prove themselves one of the most exciting and in-demand bands emerging from London. Just a day after the release of “Blue Light” the band played a completely sold-out headline show at The Lexington, which they followed with a major show in support of Jungle at their London album launch show. They have also just made their debut festival appearance at Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival.

“Blue Light” has been receiving strong support from Radio 1 and BBC Introducing alongside great critical acclaim. Radio 1 Indie Show host Jack Saunders has become such a fan of the band at the station that he’s now taking them out on his six-date ‘Hopscotch’ tour of the UK on a co-headline run alongside Kawala and Apre. Full tour dates can be found below.
