First Listen: The Stills new album Oceans Will Rise

The Stills Oceans Will Rise artwork

The Stills are back and sounding more like a horror movie U2 in Montreal snowstorm than ever. New album isn’t out ’til August 19th via Arts & Crafts but things are already trickling onto the web.

On first impressions Oceans Will Rise (we believe the above is the artwork), their forthcoming third album and first for Arts & Crafts, is perplexingly both groovier and darker than previous records. Imagine kids partying in a room with blood splattered walls. There’re some beautiful drones, which find themselves stumbling somewhere between The Shins’ last record, Death Cab for Cutie’s recent single ‘I Will Possess Your Heart’, and all the classic records which inspired pair of ’em. There’re a few corking epic singles on here, too.

  1. I just hope if anything it sounds more like Logic Will Break Your Heart rather than Without Feathers.
