It was a dark and foggy night when Still Corners songwriter Greg Hughes first laid eyes on vocalist Tessa Murray (now filled out to a 4-piece by Leon Dufficy and Luke Jarvis). â€œIt sounds stupid but itâ€™s completely true,â€ he recounts. â€œI was on a train that was going to LondonBridge. But for some reason it went to this other stop and I got out. And this other person got out. It was Tessa.â€ It was a fitting moment for the American musician who came to London to pursue a career in music. A devoted cinephile whose first release Remember Pepper recalls both the youthful tone of French New Wave and the unease of Italian horror. Fusing whispered intimacy to the emotional expansiveness of composer Ennio Morricone, Hughes crafts deceptively simple songs that linger like half-remembered dreams. This show will mark the launch of Still Cornerâ€™s debut LP Creatures Of An Hour released on Sub Pop.
"Mixing 60s production with dream-pop shimmer, are these wafty British etherealists heralding a new golden age of indie?" The Guardian
