"Recover, the debut single and lead-off track from Second Still‘s upcoming self-titled LP, leaps straight for the throat and doesn’t let go for nearly five minutes."
- Post-Punk.com

"Second Still offers the menacing sound of bands like Wire or early Cure, modernized through a guitar tone that occasionally borrows from shoegazer, and sweetened by Suki's Siouxie-sque airy vocals."
The Deli NYC

LA-based post-punk/coldwave three-piece, Second Still, are gearing up to release their debut, self-titled album on April 4th via Manic Depression Records. The band will be touring the West Coast, starting March 30th in Pomona, CA.  

The band's debut EP, Early Forms, quickly sold out of cassettes on Bandcamp after it's release in March of 2016. Between that EP and the forthcoming release, they released a single, "Walls," that Post-Punk.com calls "a stark departure from the primitive coldwave renderings" and says, "Reverb-heavy guitars and pitch-perfect vocal melodies draw you in while a hard-hitting drum machine and a steady bass line keep the groove underneath."

The self-titled album was written in Brooklyn, NY, when the band lived there for a year. The eight-song collection covers themes from depression, frustration, anxiety and alienation -- all creative responses to the band members' struggles during that time. The cathartic, sentimental and emotionally sensitive lyrics are juxtaposed by an indifferent, unflinching, steady drum machine beat, making these unrelenting post-punk tracks feel anthemic.

Even though the songs took a year to write, the entire album took two days to record at Studio G and Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn. Hilary Johnson (Bell Hollow, The Prids) mixed and co-produced the record, and Mike Tierney (Medeski, Martin, & Wood) mastered the album. With a more polished sound, the LP features captivating bass line, chorus and delay-heavy guitars, hard-hitting beats made with iconic '80s drum machine sounds, and Suki San's pitch-perfect, hauntingly beautiful vocal melodies.
