With influences that span the spacey experiments of the United States of America, the expansive, cinematic sounds of Ennio Morricone and glamorous '80s synth pop, Still Corners is the project of Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray. The group formed after Hughes, an American expatriate, met Murray at a London train station. In 2011, they signed to Sub Pop, which released their full-length debut, Creatures of an Hour, that year along with 2013's Strange Pleasures. To record their third album, Murray and Hughes moved from London to the English seaside; inspired by the water's intense colour, they named the set of songs Dead Blue. The album, which featured the Brian Wilson-inspired single "Lost Boys," was released on Still Corners' own Wrecking Light Records in September 2016.
