"Crying" by Still Corners

Still Corners, are back with their new single “Crying.” The track is lifted from from their forthcoming LP The Last Exit. The full-length will be released on January 22nd, 2021 via Wrecking Light Records. Written during the pandemic, Tessa from the band says of the track: “The only constant in life is change, this song is about a breakup during a difficult time but it’s also about coping with a fast-moving, uncertain world. Our video shows the immense universe and inevitable change of the seasons. Everything is in flux and that’s the only thing that is certain.”

The album was brought further into focus by the pandemic when almost everything was forced to stop. Tessa explains, “There’s always something at the end of the road and for us it was this album. Our plans were put on hold – an album set for release, tours, video shoots, travel. We’d been touring nonstop for years, but we were forced to pause everything. We thought the album was finished but with the crisis found new inspiration and started writing again.”

It was in this context that songs like “Crying”, “Static” and “Till We Meet Again” were written, reflecting on the impact of isolation and the need for social contact and intimacy.

First single, “The Last Exit” is the final chapter of the Still Corners’ Road Trilogy. What began with “The Trip” and was followed by “The Message” concludes with the stunning ‘”he Last Exit”. The video, inspired by the 1975 film Picnic at Hanging Rock, finds Tessa pulled into the mysterious rocks of Joshua Tree. Tessa explains:”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.”
