Bio

The Moving Stills are a Pop/Alt Rock band from Macmasters Beach, NSW. Wading through Surf flavours and Sweet Garage/80's New York sounds, with acoustic driven numbers and pop melodies that soothe and stick.

The Stills released their latest single ‘Nineteen’ in January 2018. Working with Sydney producer, Ian Pritchett. ‘Nineteen’ , the single, speaks to the bands age and is an ode to the bitter sweet inevitability of age and adulting. It's inspired by their two years out of high school and navigates their growth over that time. Setting the tone is Tom’s vocals, with the familiar grunge and acoustic driven sticky surf-rock setting pace, not too shy from the likes of The Growlers and Catfish & The Bottlemen. The single scored plays on Triple J’s Home and Hosed show with Declan Byrne. It also features on multiple Spotify playlists including, ‘Chords + Cardigans’ and currently has 43.6K streams.

With a couple of live shows and festivals under their belt, the band have been rolling up and down the East Coast, supporting Dune Rats, Ocean Alley, The Delta Riggs, Skegss, Boo Seeka, Lime Cordiale, Gold Member, Holy Holy, Bootleg Rascal, and playing festivals including Sounds of the Suburbs, Mountain Sounds Festival and The Big Pineapple. They’ll also be heading up the NSW coast in July for the annual Bello Winter Music Festival.

The Moving Stills are currently gearing up for an EP release later this year, with more singles to come.

This band is rad, all their music is super catchy. Digs in from the start and keeps you bopping and clapping along the whole way through. Prepare to be singing this one all day.
