Silhouettes – Album

Silhouettes by Oliver Howlett & James Long

Oliver and James collaborated on Silhouettes as part of Oliver’s final assessment at The Unviersity of York. Here, you can listen for free.

Album Foreword

The word ‘silhouette’ means a shadow of an object or person, and as a concept, ‘Silhouettes’ represents a collection of different and unrelated stories or situations. However, like a shadow, sometimes we do not see (or in this case hear) the entire picture. For example, Unaware describes a parent singing to their child and Café Royola depicts a man who falls in love with a woman but is too shy to go inside her shop. For the title track Silhouettes, this portrays a soldier who has disappeared in the war and left his lover behind.
