FTRK #29 = "Silence" by Portishead

Silence (Wicca) - Portishead (2008)

Portishead is likely the most popular Trip-Hop band around, with good reason. Off their latest album, Third, "Silence" is a track woven of grief and subtle desire. The precussion, high strings and gradual movement of the song in general gives the feeling that the song is set in the backseat of a vehicle. The song reflects helplessness in the sense that, when the trip concludes, our words will fail to save us.
