Nick Edward Harris released his second album, The Tall Trees, this week. The follow-up to Chimera (2013), it sees Harris expand his accompanying orchestra of instruments while retaining his distinctive rich, deep vocals and acoustic folk bearings.

Trying To Be Silent jabs and weaves, and at some point is surely bound to be picked up by a TV network somewhere and used to soundtrack a devastating end of episode sequence, the aftermath that follows the denouement that follows the twist that follows the set-up - it just has such a strong sense of a story being told, of characters caught up in something beyond their control.
