The Moving Stills
The Moving Stills are a four-piece alternative-pop/rock band reigning from New South Wales’ Central Coast, wading through surf flavours and 80s New York garage sounds with pop melodies that soothe and stick.
The Moving Stills introduced their debut single ‘Nineteen’ t o the music scene in Jan 2018. An anthem to the inevitability of age and adulting, the familiar grunge and acoustic sticky surf-rock sound of Tommy’s vocals set the pace of a nostalgic chorus line that can set back to the earliest of school leavers. The single managed airplay on triple j’s Home and Hosed and featured on curated Spotify playlists matching the singles success with over 219,000 streams.
“The Moving Stills are a young band with, quite probably, a very big future” - Ben Folds, Double J, ‘My Pick of Australian Bands to Watch’
Their second single ‘Photo Upload’ had similar successes on multiple Spotify curations including ‘Indie Arrivals’ and ‘Local Noise’ and along with Nineteen has also received airplay on stations such as triple j, 4ZZZ and FBi Radio. The band’s newest track ‘Stick Around’ released in early November 2019. Brings forward an alternative style of surf-rock, The Stills are able to incorporate their sentiment of happy-go-lucky vocals along with an oomph of hard-hitting instrumentation. Their official clip made its premiere on triple j unearthed and also received some blog love in Australia and abroad.
The Stills have also made their live presence known, supporting renowned Australian acts such as The Delta Riggs, Bootleg Rascal and Ocean Alley. The band were also showcased at BIGSOUND 2018 as well as earning a spot on festival lineups such as Woodford Folk Festival, Sounds of the Suburbs, The Big Pineapple, Bello Winter Music Festival and Mountain Sounds Festival.
