The London based foursome reveal their latest track 'Into the Trees' and a shared love of all things cinematic
Call it fate; call it coincidence, either way the chance meeting of current bandmates, songwriter Greg Hughes, and singer Tessa Murray, on a nondescript train platform led to the happy beginnings of Still Corners. A shared love of old cinema helped shape the sound of their debut album ‘Creatures of an Hour’, so expect emotionally charged tracks laced with evocative airy vocals. With Still Corners growing into a happy 4-piece, with Leon Dufficy and Luke Jarvis joining the fold, we caught up with the band to find out more and don't forget to check out their latest track 'Into the Trees' below!
