Still Corners share vibrant new single "Heavy Days" and announce US Tour and rescheduled European dates

September 14th 2021. Following the release of their widescreen, transportive fifth studio album THE LAST EXIT in January of 2021, dream-pop auteurs Still Corners return with a welcome bid for hope in the form of sweeping, propulsive new track "Heavy Days". Contrary to the the literal weight of its title, "Heavy Days" emanates light and optimism, its energetic musicality imploring the listener to continue moving forward, not to be bogged down by the shadows and to bask in the beauty of each moment.

 

Tessa from the band comments on the track: "Sometimes it all feels like too much, there's a lot to take in reading the news all the time. We wanted to write a reminder to put the phone down now and again and get out there and live life to the fullest while you can."

 

After such a hiatus from the road, the band are also thrilled to announce a triumphant return to the live stage, with both an expansive US tour slated for spring of 2022 and rescheduled dates in Europe. Dates are listed below and you will find all the details on the band's website. US tickets go live on 16th September!

Still Corners showcase soaring new single ‘White Sands’

January 12th 2021. Following on from the huge acclaim they have received for their previously shared singles ‘Crying’ and the record’s title-track, Still Corners have now released ‘White Sands’ from their highly-anticipated fifth album THE LAST EXIT, out on 22nd January 2021 via Wrecking Light Records.

 

A desert-noir soundtrack in miniature, ‘White Sands’ tells a classic ghost story of a phantom who roams the dunes and highways scaring travellers as they cross the land. Tessa Murray croons over a quick beat, clean-tone guitar and shimmering atmospherics.

 

On THE LAST EXIT, Still Corners return with a sweeping album about the open road.  Consisting of eleven beautifully crafted songs with organic instrumentation, romantic guitar lines, spacious drums and the wistful melancholy voice of Tessa Murray, THE LAST EXIT evokes the vast space of the desert and rolling unconcerned skies.

Pre-order The Last Exit on Bandcamp and iTunes and get digital copies of the first two singles now. You can also pre-order the album on limited edition crystal clear vinyl with download code and exclusive mosaic poster, black vinyl and download code and digipak CD, along with exclusive t-shirt designs here.

Still Corners release Crying, second single from 'THE LAST EXIT'

October 27th 2020. With their highly-anticipated new album ‘THE LAST EXIT’ due out on the 22nd January 2021, Still Corners unveil their latest single ‘Crying’.

 

Following on from the album’s title-track, which was released in September, ‘Crying’ sees them bring back more of that rich and ambient aesthetic they are known for. With its sweet yet sombre intention, their newest offering delivers a strong and heartfelt return that perfectly reflects their own personal and intimate direction.


Written during the pandemic, the band’s Tessa Murray explains, "The only constant in life is change, this song is about a breakup during a difficult time but it's also about coping with a fast moving uncertain world.  Our video shows the immense universe and inevitable change of the seasons.  Everything is in flux and that's the only thing that is certain."

Pre-order The Last Exit on Bandcamp and iTunes and get digital copies of the first two singles now. You can also pre-order the album on limited edition crystal clear vinyl with download code and exclusive mosaic poster, black vinyl and download code and digipak CD, along with exclusive t-shirt designs here.

Still Corners announce new album ‘The Last Exit’, out 22nd January 2021 via Wrecking Light Records

September, 16 2020 - THE LAST EXIT is the fifth studio album from Still Corners, which will be released on 22nd January 2021 on Wrecking Light Records.

 

With the shimmering desert noir sound the band has become known for, THE LAST EXIT takes you on a hypnotic journey, one filled with dilapidated towns, mysterious shapes on the horizon, and long trips that blur the line between what’s there and not there. Greg says, “We found something out there in the desert – something in the vast landscapes that went on forever."

 

THE LAST EXIT consists of eleven beautifully crafted songs with organic instrumentation, clean-toned guitar, spacious drums and the smoky croon of Tessa Murray. Album highlights include “The Last Exit”, “White Sands” and “Shifting Dunes” all of which evoke the vast space of the desert and rolling unconcerned skies.

 

The album was brought further into focus by the pandemic when almost everything was forced to stop. Tessa explains, “There's always something at the end of the road and for us it was this album. Our plans were put on hold – an album set for release, tours, video shoots, travel. We’d been touring nonstop for years, but we were forced to pause everything. We thought the album was finished but with the crisis found new inspiration and started writing again.” 

 

It was in this context that songs like ‘Crying’, ‘Static”, ‘Till We Meet Again’ were written, reflecting on the impact of isolation and the need for social contact and intimacy.

 

First single, ‘The Last Exit’ is the final chapter of the Still Corners’ Road Trilogy. What began with ‘The Trip’ and was followed by ‘The Message’ concludes with the stunning ‘The Last Exit’.  The video, inspired by the 1975 film Picnic at Hanging Rock, finds Tessa pulled into the mysterious rocks of Joshua Tree.  Tessa explains -

 

"In a world where everyone thinks all the corners of the map are filled in we like to suggest there's something beyond that, something eternal in the landscape and in our psyche.  Maybe you don't see it every day but it's there and that's what we are trying to connect to."

 

With a galloping beat, teardrop vocals and silver-tone guitar, The Last Exit races down a lonely highway to destination unknown. Elegant and searching with a grand piano ending, The Last Exit will remind you of another world beyond the one you see.

Still Corners new album Slow Air announced

Pre-order 180 gram vinyl, CDs and t-shirts here.  Digital pre-order on Bandcamp.

SLOW AIR is the fourth album by Still Corners, released on Wrecking Light on 17th August 2018.  Evoking the atmospheric sounds Still Corners are known for, Slow Air continues the band's journey with an album full of tension and brooding all the while wrapped in a reverb laden dream.

Written in the hill country in Austin, Texas, Slow Air nods towards a classic sound with emphasis on the guitar, both acoustic and electric, combined with the alluring and ghostly voice of Tessa Murray. The songs are rounded out with live drums and minimal synthesisers with all the mistakes kept in for maximum human feel and emotion.

"We wanted to hear beautiful guitar and drums and an otherworldliness, something almost indefinable along with a classic song writing vibe. We're always trying to get the sound we hear inside of ourselves, so we moved fast to avoid our brains getting in the way too much. The name Slow Air evokes the feel of the album to me, steady, eerie and beautiful."  Tessa Murray

The album title is derived from the sultry heat in Texas which causes everything and everyone to slow down.  While writing Slow Air, Still Corners found inspiration in the change of leaving England for the States and traveling around the massive expanse that is North America from the deserts of Texas and Arizona to the beaches of California and mountainous regions of the north east.

Recorded in a new studio designed by Greg Hughes in Austin, TX, Still Corners focused on a recording process that was as fluid and minimal as possible. Using a variety of microphones both old and new, the band recorded and mixed this new set of songs in three months.  Keeping everything fresh and not over-thinking moved the album to the finish line faster than any album Still Corners had written and recorded before.  Joe Laporta made the finishing touches at Sterling Sound in NYC. 

Black Lagoon, the lead single/video from Slow Air has the band on a journey from the desert to the ocean in search of a lost eden. Filmed over a month in Texas, Arizona and California and shot on a small handheld cinema camera, the band travels across America in a white mustang convertible searching and reaching into the unknown. 

The band will be touring in North America and Europe this autumn.

Still Corners release Dead Blue on Wrecking Light Records

Order here.  Also available on iTunes and Bandcamp.

DEAD BLUE was the third album from Still Corners, released on Wrecking Light on September 16, 2016.  Written on the coast of south England by the sea, Dead Blue finds the band exploring a more mechanical synthesised sound with live drums, electric guitar, Moog and a rich vocal performance from Tessa Murray.

All songs were written and performed by Tessa Murray and Greg Hughes, with drums from Neil Bullock (Broadcast).  The album was mixed by Greg Hughes and mastered by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound with original artwork by James Flames.
