I grew up in a town called Little Silver, New Jersey. In the same town, a year behind me in school, was a girl named Erika Simonian. We were friends in high school, sharing a fondness for dirty jokes, and sitting next to each other in Mr. Woodward's physics class. She became a musician as an adult, and married a guy named Steve, and they've started a band together and named it Little Silver. (Which is a better name for a band, I think, than a town.) They've just released their first record, an EP called The Stolen Souvenir, and made the video above, which features the rides on the Coney Island boardwalk, laughing gulls at the beach, and guitars that look almost as pretty as they sound.
