Bio

The Moving Stills have been hard at work writing and recording these last couple of months, whilst also jumping on a couple of support shows around the country with Pacific Avenue, Teenage Dads, Ocean Alley, Holy Holy, Lime Cordiale, DZ Deathrays and The Delta Riggs. Also making waves at aussie festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, The Big Pineapple, Bello Winter Music Fest, Mountain Sounds and showcasing at BigSound in 2018.

They’ve been working with producer Dylan Adams (DMA’s, Little May, Skegss) recording in a studio in Coogee. “It’s a whole new sound for us” Nick (Drums) from the band says. ‘Stick Around’ draws in more synths and programmed instruments. Inspired by the production style of Beck & Peace, but also incorporating the garage pop element The Stills are known for from previous singles (Almost There, Photo Upload). “It was cool how some of the original demo is in the recording. Some guitar and synth parts.” says Mike (Guitar). A song idea inspired by their personal experiences with nurturing relationships and balancing all the different kinds of connections, without neglecting one for the other.

The Moving Stills are set to play Australian Music Week in Cronulla (Nov 07) and have also been announced to play at Lost Paradise at the end of the year.

Pretty much as good as it gets, I reckon. Summer's gonna be better with this on the playlist.

This is such a clean, simple song. Every element is exactly where it should be. You do that West Coast indie rock sound so easily.
