An airy whisper cuts the chilly late summer night. A synth plays an eerie but soothing organ-like melody. A set of beats backs it all, borderline drum box. “Cuckoo” by Still Corners, one of Sub Pop’s latest artists, is a song that screams the uncanny. Rightfully so, the video follows suit, layering colors atop the band for a ghastly, oddly hologram-like appeal.
I was pretty damn excited about Memoryhouse’s The Years EP, which I reviewed a few days back, but I think I’m even more excited for Still Corners’ forthcoming release. That album is called Creatures Of The Hour and it comes out October 11 on Sub Pop.
