Widely-acclaimed country duo Striking Matches are in the UK this week for five shows, starting with a sellout London date on Friday (8) at the Union Chapel. The opening song from their debut album ‘Nothing But The Silence’ is being release as a single by Caroline International on June 1, and they’ve announced that they’ll be back for their first headline UK tour in November.

Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis’ rise to prominence since they played the songwriter evening at the 2014 Country 2 Country Festival has been mercurial. They returned for this year’s C2C event and were one of the most popular attractions of the festival.

In this short film, you can watch them discuss the album, Nashville and working with T-Bone Burnett, who produced ‘Nothing But The Silence’:
