Track premiere: Stills “Pacific Coast”

Brooklyn based folk-rock-americany band Stills’ new EP “Work & Wine” is coming out on December 15th and they’ve shared the track Pacific Coast with us for the first time today which is full of lovely harmonies and lapsteel. We asked band member Katie Schottland what the track was about and she emailed us: “Ummm… ‘I had written a poem for my lover in the beginning of our short and intense relationship.  While in the depths of winter, I decided to put music behind it.’ If you need something more interesting… ‘I was traveling along the coast of California, stopped off in Big Sur and met a traveling musician.  We developed a kinship.  I learned a few months later that he had passed away and I wrote this song for him.’  The first one is true, the second all lies.  Haha.” Possibly the best email reply we’ve had all year.  Oh and the track is fantastic – just listen.
