"Silence Is Easy" is the first single from the album of the same name by British pop band Starsailor. The song reached number nine in the UK, which is the band's highest position in the UK singles charts so far.[1] It was one of two songs on the album that was produced by Phil Spector.[2]

Music video[edit]

James Walsh walking among the people in the club during the video.

The video takes place in a nightclub. Walsh walks through the middle of a crowd of people with a stoic expression on his face which only changes when he is singing. While he's walking the people around him have varying attitudes: some seem to love him and others clearly dislike him. A man puts his hands on James and screams at his face, which contrasts with a Japanese girl who is so happy after watching him that it makes her cry. There are also some boys that clap him on the back to encourage him, a woman with a wedding dress and a transgender person who tries to kiss him.
