Tellison - Say Silence (Heaven & Earth)

There's so much good stuff going off right now in Pop that I could never hope to bring you it all. Today I'll try my best however, by bringing you three of the hottest tracks to have landed in the past 48 hours or so. Any other week any of these could be Track of the Week.

Keep Pop Loud do love Tellison. 'Collarbone' proved to be one of the highlights of he end half of 2010 and said single is still one of my favourite little releases to listen to.

So I couldn't let it pass that they've got a new video for their ace new single 'Say Silence (Heaven & Earth)', the lead from their forthcoming second album The Wages Of Fear.

'Say Silence' hits all of the right places, and if I was less weary of the term then I'd call this spectacular rocker 'emotionally charged'. But that's all too often used when people want to call bands emo without using the word. That's not the case here. Tellison are skyscraping punk pop with pounding drums and massive choruses with debts to both post-hardcore and pop. If you've not come across them before, here's as good a place as any to start. Fans of Young Legionnaire will dig this big time.

Also, it's worth mentioning that the video is pretty spectacular in it's use of moustaches and miniatures.
