Garden Nights: Still House Plants + Guests
An evening of live music courtesy of Still House Plants + guests within the unique environment of the Camden Art Centre Garden.
Still House Plants are a UK group made up of Jess Hickie-Kallenbach, Finlay Clark, and David Kennedy.
From a bare bones set up of guitar, drums and vocals they create fractious and sharp music with a melting pop heart. Bridging elements of sampling, slow core, and repetition the trio have developed a sound that constantly breaks apart and fuses together again.
Their second LP, Fast Edit, released on blank forms and bison, was written aided by mobile phones, dictaphones, laptop recordings, conversations, and live shows, blending fidelities and aural spaces. Things sit on top of each other, fall over one another, or click into place, with hearts on sleeves and spirits in motion.
Notable shows include empty gallery (Hong Kong), Hyperlocal Festival (with NTS/British Council, Buenos Aires), various DIY spaces in Santiago de Chile, and a six-month residency at Cafe Oto as recipients of the Oto projects UK artists residency fund, (supported by Jerwood arts). 2021-2022 sees the trio touring Europe, North America, as well as shows in Mexico and Japan.
The group are currently working on their third studio album.
This event has been organised by 33-33 with Camden Art Centre.
