Slow Air, the fourth album to be released by Still Corners on August 18. Offers not only music, but, a lesson in slowing down.
Written in the hill country in Austin, Texas, Slow Air nods towards a classic sound with emphasis on both the acoustic and electric guitar, combined with the alluring ghostly voice of Tessa Murray.
The album’s title derived from the sultry heat in Texas and inspired by the band’s journey from England to North America was recorded in a new studio designed by Greg Hughes in Austin, TX.
The band shared their focus on a recording process that was as fluid and minimal as possible, enabling them to mix and record the new set of songs in three months. A technique, which was a direct result of a lack over -thinking making Slow Air the fastest album written and recorded by the band.
Singer, Tessa Murray, said: “We wanted to hear beautiful guitar and drums and an otherworldliness, something almost indefinable along with a classic song writing vibe. We’re always trying to get the sound we hear inside of ourselves, so we moved fast to avoid our brains getting in the way too much. The name Slow Air evokes the feel of the album to me, steady, eerie and beautiful.”
Still Corners, lead single/video, Black Lagoon, from the album shows the band on a journey from the desert to the ocean in search of a lost Eden. With the band traveling across America in a white mustang convertible searching and reaching into the unknown.
