One of my favorite contemporary dream pop bands is putting out new music, which I'm pumped about. Still Corners, if you've never listened to them, is like entering another world - one presided by the likes of David Lynch and such. I've only been listening to them for a few years, but I'm very smitten.
"The Last Exit" is due on in January 2021, and here's a glimpse at what that album is going to sound like via the title track.
Themes of isolation (bcs of COVID, thanks COVID) and the need for intimacy make their way into the album. And there's no better place to express isolation than the desert, is there? Says Greg Hughes of the two-piece band, "We found something out there in the desert – something in the vast landscapes that went on forever."
The video for "The Last Exit" is inspired by "Picnic at Hanging Rock." Said singer Tessa Murray of this creative choice, "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."
