Still House Plants are a UK trio consisting of Jessica Hickie-Kallenbach, Finlay Clark, and David Kennedy. The fact they studied together at Glasgow School of Art is arguably apparent both in their live concerts and recorded music, as all sonic and visual elements are consciously intertwined. Consisting of electric guitar plugged directly into the amplifier, a drum kit made up of it's bare essentials, and the full potential of a female voice, their instrumentation is extremely minimal, serving as a creative obstruction to the music and its performance. Feeding this immediacy, their pieces are a constant flux between composition and improvisation both on album and in concert.
About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
