Dream-pop duo Still Corners present their third studio album, Dead Blue, on Wrecking Light Records following two previous efforts on Sub Pop. The album chronicles the arrival of a young woman in a new city and explores love, loss and deceit. It's a dark tale of someone out of their depth, looking for beauty and equilibrium but being dragged down by dark forces that she can't control. All songs were written and performed by Tessa Murray and Greg Hughes.
"This album is an expression of our fears and our desires in an effort to get a handle on our past experiences and the world around us," Hughes said. "The more you know your own darkness, the more you can control those triggers to prevent all out wild fires in your own life. There's an old Native American tale where an elder tells a boy about the two wolves that live in his heart. One is love and one is fear. They are in a battle. The boy asks, well 'which one wins?' The elder replies, 'the one you feed most.' A big part of winning that battle against fear is knowing what triggers it."
