“The Photograph” Still Corners

"The Photograph" by Still Corners is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'

Still Corners’ forthcoming release Slow Air will be available August 17, via their imprint Wrecking Light, The band recently shared their new single “The Photograph”. Additionally, the band have announced a run of European tour dates that will follow up their extensive North American tour this fall.

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. To note, the band are now based in Woodstock, NY.

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.
