Still Corners is the duo of Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray. Hughes -- from Austin, Texas, but residing in London for the past decade -- is constantly developing his production and songwriting through the project. With a minimal setup of drum machine, guitar, and synth, the duo pours tons of emotion into their dreamy, cinematic pop songs. They stopped by the studio to play some tunes from their latest release, and to talk about the unlikely way they got together.
Clementine & The Galaxy is the NYC-based duo of vocalist Julie Hardy and producer Mike MacAllister. Sparked by a commercial project collaboration between the two experienced musicians, the pair bring together their vastly different styles to craft a unique sound with soaring vocals and glam-tinged electronic pop.
Ryan McPhun is the driving force of The Ruby Suns. Previously seen behind the drums with Aussie group Architecture in Helsinki and Kiwi singer Lawrence Arabia, this California native via Oslo, Norway, headed to New York to craft his latest record into a flawless piece of hi-fi pop with the help of engineer Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Gang Gang Dance). A breakup record at heart and a pop record through and through, this is music for headphones, dance parties, and everything in between.
