’Think This Way’ is the brilliant new track from Stillhound, consisting of school friends Fergus Cook, Laurie Corlett-Donald, Dave Lloyd and latest addition Cat Myers. The band have been locked away in various studios and mountain lodges around their native Scotland, developing their sound and taking inspiration from art, geography and the far flung soundscapes created by Boards of Canada to the pop aesthetic of Tears for Fears.
Their first offering ‘Seethe Unseen’ emerged for the dark side of Stillhound, blending atmospheric pop with glistening and emotive electronica, drawing influences from multiple faucets of music and blending it into an original form. Follow up ’Think This Way’ encompasses digital textures and sounds, accompanied by a driving beat with the vocals creating a beautifully bleak outlook that draws from the song’s landscape. The video was directed and edited by Gareth Goodlad of On Red and features guest camera work, costume design and production by Daniel Cook.
Stillhound’s live show is still in development stage but with a handful of tracks waiting to be unleashed, they look ready to pick up the electronic-pop mantle and make 2015 their own.
