Mit ihrem sphärischen 70er-Cinemascope-Sound betritt das britische Duo Still Corners die Pop-Bühne. "Creatures Ofq An Hour" (Trost Records/Sub Pop) ist ein weiteres Album geworden, das man zum weit gefächerten Genre "Dream Pop" zählen darf.
"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."
By the time of their second record in 2013, Still Corners had shifted focus from '60s influences in favour of a slicker, more '80s-sound inspired byRoxy Music's Avalon. Another Sub Pop release, Strange Pleasures includes the hit single Fireflies (Pitchfork, Best New Track) and sleeper hit, The Trip.
To record their third album, Murray and Hughes relocated from London to the English seaside. Moved by the water's intense dark colour, they named the set of songs Dead Blue. The album, which featured the Brian Wilson-inspired single Lost Boys was released on Still Corners' very own Wrecking Light Records in September 2016 and was highest-rated dream pop album on The Line of Best Fit in 2016.
Still Corners return in 2018 with a new album, Slow Air. Evoking the atmospheric sounds Still Corners are known for, Slow Air continues the band's journey with a lush, ethereal album inspired by the heat of America's west.
