‘"Vieux Silence”, and ELODIE in general provoke a visual imagination in an instant, perhaps fil- tered through aged watercolour, tape grain, antique lenses, forgotten levels of listening and ob- servational patience. On this gorgeous album Chalk & van Luijk also collaborate with piano, ped- al steel and clarinet (played by ; Tom James Scott, Daniel Morris and Jean-Noel Rebilly, respec- tively).

Each detail carefully considered and colouring step by step, like an impressionist watercolour.’
