Formed in North London by brothers Desmond (vocals, guitar) and Gavin Lambert (bass, vocals) along with drummer Rob Flanagan, With Coldplay’s producer, Rik Simpson at the helm, their debut album ‘Silence Will Kill You’ spawned two radio hits – ‘Losing My Mind’ and ‘Propaganda’, leading the band to be nominated for XFM album of the year in 2007.
The movies followed in 2010 when their song ‘How To Start A Revolution’ became the stomping backdrop to the international trailer for Matthew Vaughan’s superhero blockbuster, ‘Kick-Ass’. The success not only secured the band further film placements (Irvine Welch’s ‘Filth’) but it also helped fuel a crowd funding campaign for the band’s second album. Some Velvet Morning raised a staggering £100,000 in just six weeks. Their second album “Allies” introduced France to SVM, establishing national radio play and festival headline slots.
The band released a single each month in 2016. The best of these tracks will feature on a third album with new material currently in production.
