Come On Live Long – Sum Of Its Parts

In The Still is the second album by Come On Live Long. Following on from their critically acclaimed debut Everything Fall, the new album signifies a rebirth for the band, while also representing an evolution of their distinctive blend of exquisite melodies, driving rhythms and ethereal soundscapes.

Written over the last two years, during which the band were apart geographically for long periods of time, the album deals with the theme of intense isolation set opposite an overwhelming togetherness.

At times intimate and deeply personal, there is quiescent melancholia to be found in its breathy vocals and soft handed melodies that lead into unexpected explosions of less controlled, violent dynamic shifts – a sonic representation of the band’s collective experience. Through a longing for experimentation and a refusal to compromise, COLL took their time, allowing each song to evolve through multiple iterations with some tracks making use of string and choral arrangements. The album comprises of 9 tracks that reflect the bands diversity of experience.

The album was produced by Come On Live Long and mixed by band member Ken McCabe. The album will be available for pre-order on vinyl and streaming from May 19th.
