“’She Fell In Love With Silence’ involves the shattered emotions of a victim of domestic abuse as she pauses to question how to make changes in life. Far from being overburdened with its subject SFILWS bounces along with a searing melody that delights and somehow projects the feeling that ‘the blows will stop’.” Jim Kerr – Lostboy’s new single hits iTunes on August 15th

In just a few years Portico Quartet’s hypnotic music has taken them from busking on London’s South Bank, to a Mercury Prize nomination, to performing at the Royal Opera House (with support from Wiley and Chipmunk) and recording at Abbey Road with producer John Leckie. Famed as a nurturer of young bands (Stone Roses, Radio Head etc), Leckie has brought a powerful clarity to the band’s music and Isla is a darker, more mature, expansive statement than their debut, Knee-Deep In The North Sea. However, it is still very much a Portico Quartet album.
