Still Corners are releasing a new album, Slow Air, this Friday (August 17) via their own label, Wrecking Light. Previously they shared a video for its first single, “Black Lagoon” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for its second single, “The Photograph” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Now the dream-pop band have shared a video for another new song from the album, “The Message.” The band self-directed the atmospheric video, which was filmed alongside a highway in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California and features mist or fog coming over the mountains. Check out the video below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Still Corners are the male/female American/British duo of Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray and Slow Air is their fourth album, the follow-up to 2013’s Strange Pleasures (a criminally under-appreciated dream-pop gem released via Sub Pop) and 2016’s Dead Blue (also released on Wrecking Light). Slow Air was recorded in Austin, TX, in a studio designed by Hughes. Although, the band is now based in Woodstock, NY.

The band issued this statement about the song: “‘The Message’ is a song about leaving someone and telling them on voicemail. Atmospheric clean-tone guitar mixes with Tessa Murray’s voice as it floats over a lonesome highway recording reminiscent of Sun records with shades of ‘50s Americana.”

Murray had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “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.”

In 2016 Murray wrote a My Inner Geek guest blog post for us about Star Trek: The Next Generation and you can read that here.
