‘Moving Pictures Silent Films‘ added melancholy to New Amsterdam end scene
The beautiful Great Lake Swimmers song ‘Moving Pictures Silent Films‘ was featured on the new episode of the NBC medical drama New Amsterdam this week — Season 1, Episode 13, “The Blues“.
The track was played during the episode’s closing scene.
‘Moving Pictures Silent Films‘ is from Great Lake Swimmers’ self-titled debut album. Released in 2003 on the indie label weewerk, the album was actually recorded in an abandoned grain silo in the Canadian folk rock band’s hometown.
This location helped give a melancholy almost hollow feel that added such emotion to already hauntingly sad songs.
Great Lake Swimmers have since released six other albums, and seven EPs. The indie band’s last album, The Waves, The Werk, was released last year.
The band itself comprises lead vocalist and acoustic guitarist Tony Dekker, along with a revolving door of musicians depending on who is available or which direction the music is going in.
