((The Stills)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness
MORE BANDS WE LIKE >
00's/80's band The Stills opened for Interpol and a year later they were selling out two straight shows at the Bowery. What happened? Well they have a good-looking singer with a nice tenor. They write haunting (but not too haunting, a la creepy Black Heart Procession) melodies accompanied by catchy swirling guitar hooks. And they're from Montreal, the new "It" city of the moment. 80's pop/punk haters probably won't dig The Stills, who sound a lot like Echo and the Bunnymen or The Cure. If this were the 80's they'd be huger than huge. Since it's 2004, they'll settle for being a band with some buzz.
