A few weeks ago we had the chance to do a shoot with the guys in the Toronto band, Still Life Still for an upcoming 'Field Recordings' session, while they were in town for some shows in NYC. The quintet just announced that they'll be coming back to the area with a new three-week North American tour beginning in February 2010 with the UK’s, Wild Beasts. The band recently released their sexually charged hook filled debut, Girls Come Too, back in August, which was recorded by Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene, who also signed the band to his label, Arts & Crafts (Feist, The Dears, Broken Social Scene).
The group which has been together since grammar school, built up their reputation off of their live shows around Toronto, which caught the ear of Drew, and before long the band put out an EP, 'Pastel', soon after releasing 'Girls Come Too'. They toured the U.S. for the first time in September supporting labelmates The Most Serene Republic, while also making their New York debut with three performances in Oct. including the CMJ Music Marathon.
