premiere: Still Corners unveil dreamy new single Horses at Night


London dream-pop duo Still Corners unveil their twinkling new single: we've always felt these two would make the ideal house band for an '80s prom (hugest compliment, in my opinion) and the romantically swaying "Horses at Night" elicits the kind of bittersweet yearning that would make it a perfect, vaguely cinematic anthem for a final slow-dance.

Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist." -- Beach House, on their new album

Depression Cherry is out August 28 on Sub Pop, with both LP + CD versions coming packaged in a "sumptuous red velvet sleeve." Check the tracklist "with selected lyrics" after the jump…
