Odd Morris – Silhouette
Despite its relatively short length of just over 2 minutes, Odd Morris’ newest single Silhouette manages to take you by the hand, exploring the intimacy of feelings of familial pressure and the issue of men’s mental health across generations, whilst unravelling both in terms of Daragh Griffin’s poetic lyricism – seen in the opening line “The face of a man steps out from his silhouette” – as well as in the gradual shift from a soft, bareback beginning to a complex weaving of mellow guitar riffs with heavy hitting percussion.
With its partnering video capturing essences of the same calm imagery, there’s nothing but anticipation towards the release of their EP, Cityscape the Ballet, on the 27th of October.
