Stillwater Giants

Stillwater Giants

 Perth, Western Australia, AUS
BandRockPop

Four lads emerged out of a hazy south western beach cottage into a scorching summer day with nothing but ringing ears and surf on the mind. Shoot forward to the present and Stillwater Giants are an act to watch, chalking up high rotation singles and a swag of national tours and festival appearances.

Biography

You knock off work, it's still 38 degrees in the shade. Your 1989 Corolla doesn't have (probably never had) air-conditioning, but the windows roll down just fine so you hop in and gun it down Caves Road. Twenty minutes pass and eventually into view, through your permanently scuffed up windscreen, floats the ocean. Deep breath, head under water. This is the feeling encapsulated in Insane - the dreamy new single from Margaret Rivers very own chill kings Stillwater Giants.

Following on from the breakaway success of their previous single Fly Under The Radar (a track that defied it's name and became a summer radio staple last year), Insane comes on the eve of an extremely busy period for Stillwater Giants. Capitalising on some overseas traction and a great radio response in the USA, the lads will be packing their bags and making their way to New York City for showcases at the massive CMJ Music Marathon. This will follow a national tour with rockers Stonefield, a run that comes on the back a previous jaunts with The Delta Riggs, Glass Towers, Birds Of Tokyo, British India and appearances at festivals like Southbound and St Kilda Festival.

Insane is taken from a forthcoming album to be released early 2014 which will no doubt see Stillwater Giants further establishing their bourgeoning reputation and sound. You could call it 'spindly indie' - all intertwining guitar lines, soaring harmonies and just enough tint to make the sunset look that little bit more magical.

Lyrics

Not Like the Others

Written By: Henry Clarke / Tom Godden

Timidly, treads in the shallows,
Pleasing, presents at the gallows.
Moving, en masse with the others,
He’s not like the others.

Falsely, follows in numbers,
Grieving, God knows he suffers.
Quietly, conforms to his brothers,
He’s not like the others.

Hey you’re not like them,
You’re not like the others.
Hey you’re not like them,
You’re not like the others.

Dazed out like acid on the brain,
Poised to jump from a moving train.
Wake up and crawl from the covers,
You’re not like the others.

Take a look around, you’ll find a better place,
Take a look around, you’ll find the right escape.
Take a step back, all of you brothers,
He’s not like the others.

Hey you’re not like them,
You’re not like the others.
Hey you’re not like them,
You’re not like the others.

Walking On Air

Written By: Henry Clarke / Tom Godden

It’s that feeling, when you have done it right.
And it’s that release that helps you sleep at night.
When it’s off your chest and all resolved and fair,
You will be the one who is walking on air.

The young lad, he set his sights on a life he wanted to build.
Now, those big shoes don’t seem so hard to fill.
Everything is a thrill and he’s got the money to pay the bills.
He’s cruising now he’s breaking out he’s walking on air.

Walking on Air.

Fly Under the Radar

Written By: Henry Clarke / Tom Godden

Hey avoider, cross the border,
Fly under the radar, fly under the radar.
Dodge that missile, drive another mile,
Fly under the radar, fly under the radar.

Take another chance, risk a fine romance,
Deal another hand, tiptoe through the sand.
Fly under the radar, fly under the radar.

Turn the corner, cross the border,
Fly under the radar, fly under the radar.
Dodge that missile, drive another mile,
Fly under the radar, fly under the radar.

Take another chance, risk a fine romance,
Deal another hand, tiptoe through the sand.
Fly under the radar, fly under the radar.

Fly… Fly… fly…
