Second Still is a three piece post-punk/coldwave band from Los Angeles, CA. Combining the definitive sounds of French coldwave with the unconventional time signatures of No Wave, then layering that hybrid with hauntingly beautiful vocal melodies, Second Still crafts a sound soaked in nostalgia but also one that marches onwards towards the future. Infectious bass lines infiltrate your body and attack your senses. Guitar phrases glide in undulating melodic waves that peak into moments of formidable delay feedback. Heavyweight drum machine beats feel like punches to the gut. Combing the 80s underground for only the best of influences like Xmal Deutschland, Garlands-era Cocteau Twin, Asylum Party, and Opera De Nuit, Second Still invokes the classic wave of La Vague Froide as their sound washes over you. Smooth running water slowly freezes as the sun’s reflection is blocked by a sound that is decidedly Second Still’s own unique imprint.

Originally formed in late 2014 in Brooklyn, NY, Second Still has been steadily gaining a devout following in the post-punk underground scene ever since. Ryan Walker (guitar) and Alex Hartman (bass) met in 2007 in Los Angeles, and by the time they moved to New York together in 2011, they had recorded a sizable collection of 100+ instrumental demos. After searching high and low for a vocalist that could match their intensity and creative output, they eventually met singer Suki San, and things clicked right away. The band’s first show was a party at the condemned Mckibbin lofts in Brooklyn that the cops shut down halfway through the second song. Early Forms, the bands four song debut EP, was released in March 2016 as a limited edition cassette. Recorded in a barn in upstate New York over three days, the cassette has long since sold out and is now a sought-after gem. Before re-locating to Los Angeles in November 2015, Second Still hunkered down in the studio and recorded their entire self-titled debut album in just two days. The album is out April 4th 2017 on Paris-based label Manic Depression Records.
