Still Life Still is a Canadian indie rock group, formed in 1999 in the former East York (now Toronto), Ontario. The band’s line-up has undergone minor changes over the years, but currently consists of guitarists/vocalists Brendon Saarinen and Eric Young, bassist Derek Paulin, drummer Aaron Romaniuk and his brother, keyboardist/percussionist Josh Romaniuk. The band was formed in 1999 and is made up of a group of friends who grew up together in the Main/Danforth neighborhood of East York when its original four members (Aaron, Eric, Derek and Brendon) were still in junior high school. The group originally played under the names Unreal and El Mo before finally changing to Still Life Still. They were signed to Canadian indie rock label Arts & Crafts and began recording with Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Martin Davis Kinack in 2008.[1] Their first commercial EP, Pastel, was released on June 16, 2009, which was followed by their first full-length album, Girls Come Too, on August 25, 2009.[2] The band toured most of North America with such acts as The Most Serene Republic and The Hold Steady to promote Girls Come Too and appeared on MTV Canada’s MTV Live in the summer of 2009.

In early 2012 their song Neon Blue from Girls Come Too was featured in the romantic drama The Vow which was filmed primarily in the band’s hometown of Toronto.

Still Life Still is releasing their upcoming album ‘Mourning Trance’ on August 20th through Arts & Crafts.
