Sylver Tongue – ‘Something Big EP’

6 / 10 The 33-year-old Charlotte Hatherley has given 15 years to indie music. First came Nightnurse, then Ash. Then three solo albums. More recently, she’s played in Bat For Lashes and KT Tunstall’s band. All in all, she’s earned the right to dress up like a sci-fi queen and call herself Sylver Tongue. Judging from this debut EP, the new persona is really Char’s way of getting her electro on. ‘Something Big’ resembles Little Boots, while ‘Creatures’ is like Siouxsie Sioux doing synth-pop. But she’s most convincing on dreamy, ambient tracks like ‘Faraway Sun’ and ‘Hook You Up’. A work in progress, but she’s done enough to keep the call from KT at bay.
