‘The Trip’ by Still Corners – Karen’s goosebump moment
“Hi, my name is Karen, and I am from Chile. My goosebump moment is related to a song called ‘The Trip’ by Still Corners. This song is one of the most important songs in my life because I associate it with the most important moment in my life. It was when I was in the airport in Chile about to take a plane to Ireland when I listened to this song and I promised myself that I’d never come back to Chile and that I’d travel the world forever. So, in that particular moment, I felt that I was accomplishing something important because I was actually taking the plane and doing what I wanted for a long time. So, that moment will be always in my heart, and the song as well and every time I listen to the song just my hair rises straight away.”
Take a Trip with Still Corners
Still Corners released their single, ‘The Trip’ in May 2013, and it has been an instant classic. The American-British duo, comprised of Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray, have been making music together since 2009.
“We wanted to capture the feeling of the open road,” said Hughes when discussing the song’s inspiration. “It’s about those moments when you feel so free that you could keep going forever.”
‘The Trip’ is a dreamy track that combines both classic indie rock sounds with a modern twist. The single features shimmering guitars, soft drums, and Murray’s beautiful vocals that draw listeners in from the very first note. It’s a perfect representation of Still Corners’ signature sound – one that has earned them a dedicated fan base around the world.
The accompanying music video for ‘The Trip’ brings the song to life in stunning fashion. Directed by Rosanna Curlewis and filmed in California’s Joshua Tree National Park, it follows two adventurers on their journey through the desert landscape. As they explore different locations, they share intimate conversations about life and love – all set against a backdrop of sweeping vistas and beautiful sunsets.
Still Corners are no stranger to creating captivating visuals for their music videos – with this being no exception. But what really sets ‘The Trip’ apart is its universal message of freedom – something we can all relate to during these uncertain times.
“This song was written before Covid-19, but now seems even more relevant than ever,” says Murray. “It’s about feeling free from our worries and troubles, wherever we can find it.”
