Bio

The Moving Stills hail from the Cenny Coast of NSW. Making music as a 4-piece that wade through surf flavours with a danceable pop bend that’ll keep you in good spirits. Garage sounds and cheeky pop melodies that’ll soothe and stick. Reminiscent of Beck, The Creases and The Cure. The Stills know how to pack a punch with nostalgia and heart in their songs.

Known for their Indie/Alt sound, The Moving Stills have played the local festival and tour circuit for the last two and a bit years, establishing themselves as a band that'll stick around.
In that time they've supported Lime Cordiale, Ocean Alley, Spacey Jane, Delta Riggs, BOO Seeka and supported a tour with Pacific Avenue. Before the lockdowns started, they also teamed up with their Victorian mates, Teenage Dads to co-headline a national tour.

They’ve been the perfect soundtrack to festivals around the country, including Mountain Sounds, Neck of The Woods, Woodford Festival, The Big Pineapple, Sounds of The Suburbs and Lost Paradise. After their last couple of tours tweaking their live set, they've perfected their live steez.

In 2020, they made more music then ever and took a COVID enforced break from touring. Releasing singles, ‘Your Standards’ and ‘Bad’ and racked up some streaming Editorial support. Currently, The Moving Stills are charging out of the waters and onto the road again. Selling out Byron Bay earlier this year, and pulling crowds up and down the east coast (Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Crescent Heads, Mona Vale, Thirroul and Sydney). The 4-piece guitar slingers will be releasing more music this year (getting to an album in November), following from their past singles 'Bad' and 'Your Standards'. They’ve continued to work with mixer/producer Dylan Adams on the album. Experimenting with sounds and style, but also keep their Alternative roots. Catch em at a show next and keep an ear out for their upcoming singles.

Have become such a fan of this track! It holds its pace and keeps its cool and it's just so easy to sink in to. Love the slight psychy energy too.

Love how this one progresses. Starts off like a wallflower at the back of the room, then suddenly takes over the dancefloor under the strobe lights. That 'told you so' section is great - a little trippy MGMT-like chorus.

this song is like those incredible eggs you get in ramen - how is it hard and soft at the same time?!
