Bio

The Moving Stills are a Pop/Alt Rock band from Macmasters Beach, NSW. The band paddles 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. For this single and their upcoming longer release the band have worked 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 wades through their growth over time.

With a bunch 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 and playing festivals including Sounds of the Suburbs and Mountain Sounds Festival. They head back to Mountain Sounds this year, for their fourth consecutive appearance.

The Moving Stills released their first single ‘Honey’ in 2015, through Triple J Unearthed and received plays on both Unearthed Radio and Triple J. They’re currently gearing up for an EP release later this year, with more singles to come.

I want to hear this over and over. I'm a huge fan of this. Everything. The claps, the jangles, that nostalgic chorus, that warm wave of energy. This is great.
