Reviews:

"We Will Become Silhouettes" was released February 8, 2005 by The Postal Service under the Sub Pop Records label. The single included a new track "Be Still My Heart" and two remixed tracks by Matthew Dear ("We Will Become Silhouettes") and Styrofoam ("Nothing Better"). The title track has been used in a Honda Civic commercial. Indie bands Iron and Wine and The Shins have both performed acoustic covers of the track for one of the Postal Service's B-Sides, Such Great Heights.

The video for this song, directed by Jared Hess, consists of incongruously lighthearted footage of a family (consisting of band members Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, frequent collaborator Jenny Lewis, and two young children) playing and singing the song, then riding bicycles into the desert and, at the very end, watching the sun set in the distance. Their odd clothing, the worn down houses they pass by, abandoned streets, and the lyrics may suggest the video takes place far in the future, post-nuclear attack.

This was the fourth single released by The Postal Service. The cover artwork was designed by Kozyndan, who have done the previous singles as well.

The single was the band's most successful, hitting #82 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song was used in the trailer for the 2009 film's ''Funny People'' and appeared in the movie ''Love Happens'', both released in the same year. - Wikipedia
