NXNE Song Of The Day: Still Life Still – Wild Bees

If you’re ever looking for a band that brings the love and community of music together, it’s Still Life Still.

Born and bred in Toronto (East York more specifically), Still Life Still have been making music together for well over a decade. They live and breathe music, and after years of playing every venue, several times a week, Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene and record label Arts and Crafts took them on, produced their album and signed them. It was a true example that working hard, putting in your time and passionately pursuing your dream (as cliché as it sounds) works out, and the entire album is a labor of love.

The song “Wild Bees” off of debut album Girls Come Too is a soft, harmony-rich song. It paints a beautiful landscape with its lines “Asleep in the valley yeah the leaves all pulse, I see the quiet edges where we all live on”, with Brendan Saarinen and Eric Young’s smooth matching vocals and guitars, they build up with a haunting intensity repeating the lines “then you disappear, is your ghost still there?”.

Still Life Still is playing the Arts and Crafts showcase at the Rivoli on June 14th at 1:00am. Look forward to hearing new songs that will be featured on the long awaited follow up that they have just finished recording.
