Many bands lay claim to the adjective "cinematic." But how many can claim a truly cinema-worthy moment as part of their inception? It was a dark and foggy night when Still Corners songwriter Greg Hughes first laid eyes on vocalist Tessa Murray.
A devoted cinephile—whose first release Remember Pepper recalls both the youthful tone of French New Wave and the unease of Italian horror—Hughes sees film as a major influence, from the projections (created by band member Leon Dufficy) that feature heavily in their live performances ("It's nice to have something lovely to look at"), to the free-floating grace of debut full-length, Creatures of an Hour. Icarus got permission to record their set in Charlatan Gent and had an interview with Greg & Tessa.
