Stillhound

Performed in Sofar Edinburgh

Edinburgh based Stillhound, consisting of Fergus Cook, Laurie Corlett-Donald and Dave Lloyd, take inspiration from art, geography and the far flung soundscapes of their homeland, creating an avant-pop record with glacial electronics and packed with unashamed synth pop moments. Having met at school in 2009 the band have undergone a few line up changes since but have now solidified as a strong trio. In October 2016, they released their debut album ‘‘Bury Everything’, mixed by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, Grizzly Bear) and mastered at Abbey Road. Lead single ‘Time Enough For Love’ with it’s gossamer electronics provides a fitting backdrop for singer Fergus Cook’s hushed yet urgent vocals. The track racked up plays on BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, BBC Scotland and projected the band forwards to new horizons. This year will see the band releasing an EP entitled 'Let The Best' in March accompanied with a small tour of the UK, setting the foundation for the release of their second album. Most recently the band have been developing their live show into a slick beast that goes through the motions of intense to dreamy and understated over the course of a set.
