Still Corners – The Message
British duo Still Corners share “The Message”, the third single from their upcoming album Slow Air.
“The Message” follows on from the first two singles, “Black Lagoon” and “The Photograph”.
Accompanied by the dreamy visuals that are a time-lapse of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California, “The Message” is refreshingly nostalgic.
Speaking about the track, Still Corners explain, “”The Message” is a song about leaving someone and telling them on voicemail. Atmospheric clean-tone guitar mixes with Tessa Murray’s voice as it floats over a lonesome highway recording reminiscent of Sun records with shades of 50’s Americana.”
Paul Weller – The Soul Searchers
Paul Weller has never been an artist to stay still.
From The Jam’s mercurial rise to their sudden disbandment; The Style Council’s dalliance with pop, politics, and deep house; and on through his winding solo career, the iconic artist’s work is perpetually changing.
Beautiful new album ‘True Meanings’ though, is the sound of him taking stock, looking inwards, evaluating what it all means.
Recently turning 60 – a milestone in anyone’s life – he’s also re-married, and started a new family, welcoming twin boys, and a baby daughter.
Constructed at his own studio, ‘True Meanings’ is a deft, pastoral, pensive return, a 14 strong song cycle that, somewhat curiously, opens and closes with lyrics penned by other artists – Erland Cooper and Villagers’ Conor O’Brien.
Out now, it’s a warm, humane document, with Hannah Peel’s orchestrations wrapping themselves around Paul Weller’s typically soulful songwriting.
Sitting somewhere between Nick Drake and Terry Callier, it’s a gorgeous listen – Clash met up with the songwriting icon to find out a little bit more…
