STILL CORNERS announce new album “Slow Air” to be released 17th August 

Listen to first track “Black Lagoon” now

Still Corners are pleased to announce news of their new album Slow Air, to be released on 17th August 2018 via Wrecking Light. In addition to the album announcement, the band have shared the gorgeous first single “Black Lagoon”, along with a video filmed across the American landscape. Watch now via the link below…

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.

Vocalist, Tessa Murray says of the album, “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.”

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.
