以〈The Trip〉一曲迷倒各地慘情男女的倫敦雙人組 Still Corners,連相遇的故事都跟拍電影一樣:來自美國的 Greg Hughes 偶然到了英國旅行,遇見 Tessa Murray,一時天雷勾動地火,Still Corners 就此誕生。或許因為倫敦濃濃的霧氣,Still Corners 的音樂與影像也帶著無盡的幽閉色彩,以及 David Lynch 電影中的迷幻風格;常有人說他們神似 Slowdive,但旋律中飄散的靡靡之音又不如說是新生代的 Cocteau Twins 或 Mazzy Star。而每首歌的名字更如同詩或電影小說,無論是〈Berlin Lovers〉〈 Endless Summer〉或〈Don't Fall In Love〉,在煙霧般冉冉上升的吉他中,吟唱逝去的戀情與人生的苦澀,屢次出現在經典影集《Gossip Girl》與獨立電影《Bare》等等。

With influences that span the spacey experiments of Vangelis, the expansive, cinematic sounds of Ennio Morricone, and glamorous ’80s synth pop, Still Corners is the project of Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray. The group formed shortly after Hughes, an American expatriate, met Murray by chance at a London train stop in 2009.

In 2010 Still Corners released singles Don’t Fall in Love/Wish on 7-inch through British psychedelia label the Great Pop Supplement with an accompanying video for Wish directed by Lucy Dyson. Selling all 700 copies in a single day saw Sub Pop take due notice and quickly sign the group. Their first full length Creatures of an Hour was released by Sub Pop in 2011. 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 by Roxy 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.

“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

Black Lagoon, the lead single/video 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.

“SLOW AIR”
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.

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.
