A Silent Film, Royal Teeth

JAY HORTON
9 pm., Monday February 25 | $12.
Mississippi Studios
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
 

[A COLD PLAY] Just another U.K. combo trailing an insufferably twee moniker and knack for pop grandiosity—one of many; vast tent cities have been erected around Southern England to house migrant pianists pounding the ivories dawn to dusk for rom-com montage backing—until a track from its long dormant debut rode an unaccountable surge in downloads to sudden relevance two years back: A Silent Film now appears poised to wrest control of its peculiar niche. Second album Sand & Snow specializes in the sort of widescreen balladry Keane and Snow Patrol have driven platinum. If the lyrical inanities emoted ’round hook-drenched choruses seem especially vapid, that only serves to enable the inevitable stadium sing-alongs.
