iTunes Editors’ Notes

On Strange Pleasures, the London-based duo Still Corners interweaves disco, new wave, and Southern California pop influences with a very modern sensibility. The band’s sophomore project favors clean-edged guitar lines and swirling synthesizers, giving Tessa Murray’s winsome vocals a silvery aural patina. There’s an ‘80s pop sensibility here that recalls everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Mr. Mister, along with a moody sensuality suggestive of Selebrities and Chairlift. Organic and artificial textures merge to create a spacy fairyland that's at once sinister and inviting; it's heard in the tingling washes and billowing rhythms of “The Trap,” “All I Know," and similar tracks. Producer/chief songwriter Greg Hughes backs Murray with austere Krautrock beats (“Berlin Lovers”), gleaming synth backdrops (“Future Age”), and slow, eerie atmospherics (“We Killed the Moonlight”). Though radiating an ethereal presence, Murray reveals a yearning, almost desperate edge at times, cutting through the robotic throb of tracks such as “Beatcity” with palpable desire. Here, Still Corners does it all with a blend of studio precision and darkly obsessive emotion.

A sort of Cocteau Twins 2.0

Very happy I just stumbled upon this lovely recording. Fantastic moods that borrow from - and advance - most of the aesthetic charm of the old 4AD artists' sonics and ethereal calm.

Inspired to create something new after a chance meeting with singer Tessa Murray at a train stop, American expatriate Greg Hughes formed London quartet Still Corners. With a sound that's rooted in the reverb-drenched psychedelia of the '60s, the quartet, rounded out by members Leon Dufficy and Luke Jarvis, evokes the spacy experiments of the United States of America, as well as the expansive, cinematic sounds of Ennio Morricone, drawing upon European cinema for inspiration. In 2011, the band made...
