Live Video: Still Corners

photo by Brittney Bollay (view more photos)

London based four-piece Still Corners‘ simple yet sweeping music is often labeled as a cinematic experience, which makes sense considering the band cites French New Wave and Italian horror movies as two of their biggest influences. Led by writer Greg Hughes and singer Tessa Murray, Still Corners have set out to create atmospheric melodies that are anything but boring. Murray’s whispery vocals have more nuance than your average dream-pop outfit, sweeping back and between a calming lullaby and an anxious warning without distracting from Hughes’ haunting instrumentals. Still Corners stopped by the studio in November to play songs off their debut 2011 album Creatures of an Hour, as well as a surprising and subdued cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire.” Check out their full KEXP in-studio session below:

    I am getting Toni Halladay vibes from Cuckoo, and not just because of the name...
