Combining visual strategies, free improvisation, UK garage and punk, Still House Plants
build melodic hierarchies scaffolded around ambiguities and intimacy. Fresh from being selected for the Cafe OTO
Artistic Development fund, and following two sold out tapes on Glasgow label GLARC, the trio’s debut LP 'Long Play' collects their group's raw guitar-drum-vocal palette and stretches it to include violin, piano and intimate home recording. Ranging from seconds-long to seven:minute:somethings, the album coagulates to form a heady meld of rudimentary phrases, kinetic repetition and malleable samples. Experimental songwriting is rarely so forthcoming, emotive, or approachable."
