Elaine Howley – Silent Talk

The product of an audio diary kept on a 4 track cassette machine throughout 2019 and 2020, Cork-based musician Elaine Howley’s new album The Distance Between Heart and Mouth is quietly obsessed with memory and nostalgia, painting a sepia-tinted picture across nine richly atmospheric and at times disquieting tracks. Opener and lead single Silent Talk sets the scene perfectly.
