Bio

You knock off work, it's still 38 degrees in the shade. Your 1989 Corolla doesn't have (probably never had) air-conditioning, but the windows roll down just fine so you hop in and gun it down Caves Road. Twenty minutes pass and eventually into view, through your permanently scuffed up windscreen, floats the ocean. Deep breath, head under water. This is the feeling encapsulated in Insane - the dreamy new single from Margaret River’s very own chill kings Stillwater Giants. Following on from the breakaway success of their previous single Fly Under The Radar (a track that defied it's name and became a summer radio staple last year), Insane comes on the eve of an extremely busy period for Stillwater Giants. Capitalising on some overseas traction and a great radio response in the USA, the lads will be packing their bags and making their way to New York City for showcases at the massive CMJ Music Marathon. This will follow a national tour with rockers Stonefield, a run that comes on the back a previous jaunts with The Delta Riggs, Glass Towers, Birds Of Tokyo, British India and appearances at festivals like Southbound and St Kilda Festival. Insane is taken from a forthcoming album to be released early 2014 which will no doubt see Stillwater Giants further establishing their bourgeoning reputation and sound. You could call it 'spindly indie' - all intertwining guitar lines, soaring harmonies and just enough tint to make the sunset look that little bit more magical.
